150 days of painting and photography. Wowzers!

Today was one of those days I imagine when I think of living in the country (more country than where I am now 😉). Perfect mix of sunshine and warmth. Birds chirping, squirrels chattering, sheets flapping on the line.

I was working at the kitchen table with the door open, enjoying the warmth and the robin singing. I took advantage of a sunny windy day by hanging my freshly laundered bed clothes on the line. They were dry in no time at all.

I wasn’t sure what to paint today. Looked at the blank page for a few minutes then saw a green vine. This grew from that image:

Tonight’s photo came about as I was heading out the door to painting class. I saw a tractor in the field, I’m presuming sowing?

Tonight was week six of my oil painting class. It’s coming along but I’m still not loving the medium or the process. A friend said I was learning to be disciplined. I realized I don’t want to be disciplined…I prefer to be a free spirit 😉

As I’m writing this, the rain in gently falling, peepers and tree toads can be heard (when there’s a break in traffic, that is). I just love a rainy night!
