Sunny Saturday



This past Saturday was lovely and sunny, the day before the start of spring.  It was so great to see the sun, but, it was REALLY breezy with a little chill in the air.  It didn't matter, though, because the Saturday group of painters went outside and clipped a few sprigs of blossoms and painted them from inside.  Fair?  Not plein air, but close!  Here's a quick sketch that was fun light-hearted, and spring IS in the air ... cold or not!

very pretty sprig! Nice composition too.

Thanks, Mimi, The composition was "just what was in front of me." Mother Nature certainly makes it a bit easier most of the time!

AndI'm not in Mount Vernon, I am in LaConner! :-) Funny, how google places us in these spots. I hope they still give good directions to places other than Seattle and La Conner!

Thanks, Jane. It seems the quick little sketches turn out better than something I labor over! Thanks for stopping by.
