Surprise Plein Air Outing

It was magically 70 degrees today, 
so I dropped everything to paint outside. 
Thankfully, I ended up in my pal Sally's yard. 
The New England landscape is still very muted and brown,
 so her cool kiwi green umbrella and chairs got me inspired.   

Sally's Deck
8 x 10 
This needs fixing for sure, 
but I was just so happy to be out there
in a t-shirt, listening to music, soaking up the sun.
It was a joyous spring surprise. 

NOTE:  Last season I didn't get to do much plein air painting 
because Cello was such a puppy.
Sally's fenced in yard was perfect for our inaugural outing!   
Once she explored the area
 she was content to just soak up the sun! 
Happy times are here again.

  1. Lucky you. I'm getting most of my Vit D from a bottle right now. I'm envious of your ability to see a painting subject almost anywhere!
