Foggy Day Tree




I went out painting today at Valley Forge. The plan was to meet up with another artist. When I arrived, to be honest, had I been by myself I would have called it quits after one look at the grey misty sky and one lash of the cold wet breeze. That's the beauty of partnership. There Liz was, already setting up to paint, so I stifled my misgivings and did likewise. And what a nice surprise!

I did not stay long because my hands became numb and my nose turned into a faucet, but I was really somewhat pleased with my efforts. Liz and I decided we'd try never to be deterred by weather, but to adopt "Just paint it!" as our motto. Or maybe "Just say no to not painting."? ;->

Thank you for your comment, Nancy!

I like this paiting a lot, lucky you two to have each other for painting-motivation!

As for your genre inclusion project, paintings are great and it's a very interesting and heartful project!

What I love about foggy, grey days is how the color of something, anything vibrant such as this tree just hits us in the face. Serendipity!

I love this.♥
