Making the most of the outdoor. Another spontaneous plein air sketch, trying to capture the joy & beauty of a summer garden. I probably cant duplicate the breezy informality of this quick pastel, something about painting outside...

Been painting forever & I still don't know where & when inspiration is going to show up. The idea for this new design came about from a FB post from a serious poetry addict. The image of Peony under the moonlight just kind of stayed with me for weeks. If I wasn't looking for something else, I would never come acress this painting I did 20 years ago. Well, I've never seen the moon over my Peony, but I think I got the mood.

Mohonk Mountain House. The sketch always seems to come out better when I'm playing with paints outdoor on a fine day. I think our state of mind can influence our physical condition & our bodies can affect our spirit.

Delightful Cotswolds, straight out of a fairytale.

Violets from the woods remind me of one of my favorite passage from Winnie the Poo: Piglet had got up early that morning to pick himself a bunch of violets: and when he had picked them and put them in a pot in the middle of his house, it suddenly came over him that nobody had ever picked Eeyore a bunch of violets, and the more he thought of this, the more he thought how sad it was to be an Animal who had never had a bunch of violets picked for him. So he hurried out again, saying to himself, "Eeyore, Violets," and then "Violets, Eeyore," in case he forgot, because it was that sort of day.
