Random Art Thoughts

It's update time on the "Spring" project, and while I have been 3,000 miles away from my painting for the last several days, I did manage to make satisfactory progress before I left. I've blocked out color throughout the whole canvas, and can see the layers of color coming together to make that texture I love so much. I'm eager to return home and jump back into it again.

As a side note I was just wandering through Central Park in NYC and happened upon an artists group working from the scenery around them. Most worked in water color, sketching out the small water fall and surrounding greenery-- it made me think, I need to get out and do this! I never work from life. I think the beauty of working from real life is that it forces you to work quickly and take into account the light and it's affect on the subject matter. I'm sensing our June theme in the making...

Any ideas?
