|Vermont Field Route 100 in Spring|
The present acrylic I'm painting is a spring landscape with many bare trees, more than I have on the canvas. This painting, I think along Route 100, is perfect for the colors I need. The blur at the bottom is motion from being a passenger taking the pictures.

Remember last year the acrylic of this scene (photo left)? I found the (unfinished) canvas when moving art materials to a permanent area where I don't have to put things away after each painting session.

A favorite scene I had forgotten about that stirred my creative mind that crisp early spring morning driving alongside White River in Vermont are the Canada Geese on the very thin ice areas yet to be melted by the day's sun. Painting this will be a difficult watercolor for me because I'm very rusty on whiting out areas of water.
Do you keep a folder of photographs to paint from when the weather turns cold?
Are you ready for the cold weather?
