Here are a couple paintings in descending order. First day, it was really overcast and grey. WOW! Nearly rained. Great flat light. So quiet and green! First looks west to Laguna de Santa Rosa, the dry one. Second, in the afternoon when the sun peaked through. Craig Nelson complained that I made him look a bit too, ugh, round..... That was a really fast effort on a too smooth panel. A little loosey goosey as a result. Time to do a little studio clean up!

Nice, Chuck! Good thing it didn't rain on you while you were painting! I went to a Renaissance Festival in Iowa and tried to draw but it rained, so I had to close the sketchbook.

Yes rain and sketchbooks do not generally play well together. I hope that Summer is treating you well, Steven.

Killer process indeed! Paint from eight to noon. Break, join everyone for fabulous catered lunch with outstanding wine. Take two hours to dine, celebrate life, and work on one's tan. Slowly return to easel and find the next locations while all that cuisine and pinot work their way through. Paint till dusk. Go home. Repeat next day. Ahh! Life is good.
