It was sheer joy to spend an hour in the pasture putting paint to panel this afternoon! Warm and a little windy, I set up my camera to record a video of this painting. First thing I learned - I should have had my phone fully charged! When it blew to the ground from a tripod behind me - I realized it was completely dead! I haven't looked yet to see if there in anything to salvage, perhaps how I start a painting? Oh well - I was far too involved in the process before me, to think about anything else! I planted this forsythia years ago by the barn, and each year it grows more lovely. What a joy it is to paint again each spring! I've also planted it by an old gate, and at the back corner of the house - I hope to get those paintings done before these beauties fade. Painting number 1527 in 1527 days.
