I was charging right through that " to do" list today, as the gorgeous weather called to me softly. Another chore done, the car loaded up for errands, and my tripod practically jumped out of the trunk! I could no longer resist. I grabbed my new 8x10 Guerilla Pochade, and headed to the old gate. The light was particularly nice cutting through the trees, so I set up quickly. Since this is the first time I've used this easel, I had to head back to the house three times for needed supplies! I think I'll pack it with a Zorn palette, and keep it in the trunk. I can't tell you the paintings I have missed simply because I didn't have my gear with me! No more, my friend. This painting makes 1418 in 1418 days, now back to work!
