My mantra this year is Simply Paint.....and I would like that to apply to painting time both in the studio and outside. Even if it means looking out the window or bringing nature inside. I need to make time for direct observation and painting what is in front of me instead of from a piece of paper.
I came home from errands (a fun trip to Ikea....details to come) to an email from Sarah at Judsons Art Outfitters. I was featured in the January 5th blog post! This is my sign.....I need to get outside and paint more often!
You can see the feature here: Judsons Plein Air Journal Be sure to check out their website for a wonderful selection of plein air supplies.
Today's painting is a plein air piece done on location in Iceland. This was the view from our house in Stykkisholmur.
