back to basics…

April 1, 2008

March turned a bit complicated for me, and for the most part left me uninspired. Much like I would imagine a writer feels when writers block sets in, there are times when I am simply not motivated to paint. And while I could have bombarded you with the various tactics I used to nurture my creative spirit in this time of drought…most did not seem blog worthy.

In an effort to make sure April starts right, I did some plein air painting with my handy-dandy portable watercolor set.

Not my usual medium of choice, but perfect for a quick study or two of my beloved sycamore tree.
