Plein air painting in the back yard

No Edges in the Sky. 8x10, oil on linen panel. 2015

What a great day to be painting outside! Standing in the shade of a pine tree this afternoon I could only hear the sound of birds and someone in the far distance mowing their yard.

The spring greens have arrived in full force and, as usual, it takes everything I have not to let the painting be overwhelmed by them.
