"Looking South -- Lightfood and State Roads" -- plein air field study -- oil on canvas panel -- 8x10" -- Margie Guyot
We'd had days and days of high winds and rain here, making me itching to get out and do some plein air painting! This morning I had to schlep 2 paintings up to Crooked Tree Arts Council in Petoskey, then take several others up to Three Pines Gallery in Cross Village. Quite a haul. But I had my thinking cap on and had all my painting gear with me.
Every time I'd come back from Three Pines Gallery, I'd see this road. Finally I was able to stop and paint it! The wind was bearable. The clouds were quite interesting. It wasn't too hot or too cold. In other words, it was a perfect day to be out painting!
Seems like every painting I've done with a road has sold. Wow -- a light bulb finally came on: I need to paint more road paintings!
Woke up at 4 this morning, got up at 4:30 and am about to get my bike ride in. Then I'll load up the car and drive south, towards Bellaire. Last week I saw an old tractor in a field of goldenrod. Let's hope it's still there!
