" Back at the ranch": Spent a couple of days at the ranch in Lincoln--cold, windy, some faint sun. Forgot my camera and didn't bring any paints, so missed a few good photos- and too cold + windy to paint. Some plein air will be in the future when fishing time comes though.
Considering how much I haven't been painting, ideas go streaming through my brain like freeway traffic--whether this is good or bad--not sure. I do know that not painting is not good for me mentally as I become very impatient with everything, and crabby. I thought I might alleviate that condition somewhat by just throwing some paint on paper--no plan is a plan to fail. I did find that it took the paper about 1.5 hours to dry, which surprised me since I thought the air was dry in the house. I will not throw it away as I go over these failures later and can save some.
Now that the termite inspectors are through trapsing through here, I can reassemble my studio and begin to paint again. Will keep you posted
