It was so nice to have Michaela home from college for the weekend! We started the day with a family shopping trip to the mall, followed by lunch. Once she was on her way back, and Mike went to run errands, I grabbed my paints. Without much time, I stuck close to home, choosing the wild sunflowers for my subject du jour! My intention for the month of September is to paint every painting en plein air. I always try to paint outside when I can, but I know that I can fall back in studio work. But not this month! I will not use that as a crutch. Why take this stand for this? Well, this is another 30 in 30 challenge, and this will be my focus. I truly believe that one improves most who paints from life. This painting is 1341 in 1341 days.
