Not much to report

Well, there isn’t too much to report since my last post.
I finished reading My Name is Asher Lev this week. It is definitely in my “top reads” list. Very inspiring and emotional.

Also, my husband and I are getting ready to embark on a journey to Colorado for a week! We are both very excited.
Last Sunday I purchased some small-ish canvases to take with us so that I can do some plein air painting while we are there. Tim likes to bike, so I figured while he is off mountain biking I can sit and paint.
I worked this week to get my canvases ready to go. Here’s a photo of all the ones that are in progress right now:

There’s a lot of potential here!

I have never done plein air (“painting outside from life” for those of you who haven’t heard that term before) painting before and I am excited to try it! I believe a lot of impressionist painters did this so that they would capture a specific light in a landscape. It will be interesting to try something new and see how it turns out.
I will post photos of my attempt, so stay tuned!
