It's been a while since I painted, but I was feeling the itch especially after organizing my plein air set up mentioned here. So I've carved out little 2 hour blocks of time for art making while the kids are at camp. Here's my progress from this week.

I started with a simple plein air still life to warm up. Look at that creamy paint, ahhh so nice!

Then I tried a little figurative study, experimenting with mixing drawing and painting. I used the oil paper instead of a canvas.
