At Long Last, Back to Plein Air
An Original Plein Air
Oil Painting

Plein Air
12 x 9

I have not been able to get out to paint en plein air
in ages, so when a friend called me this afternoon to let
me know that the moonflowers were blooming in
the shade of her shed,  I packed up a minimal 
amount of supplies and went up to paint.  
I liked the soothing palette of colors, and the relatively
simple design of this scene...and of course 
those wonderful flowers.  It's good to be getting
back to normal!

So glad to see you back to painting & that your recovery is going well. This is a lovely painting and I love those moonflowers also. I can almost detect their scent!

So you managed to come back in style! This is a wonderful painting of cool shadows and warm light. Moonflowers...I would love to see them for real.

I've missed seeing your beautiful art, Claire so am glad to hear you were able to get out and about to paint over the weekend. By the way, I can see a thumbnail of Rose Fantasy behind this comment box and it is stunning!
