Right now I seem to be unable to work on my art, at home. Something about too much to do here, being easily distracted… So I have been attending a weekly class with a wonderful teacher, Sandra Speidel which has reinvigorated my plein aire work. The class comments and enthusiasm is contagious and encouraging. Today we worked at a small park overlooking Petaluma.IMG_4685_1_1 Fall is in full swing.

Mondays I have been going to an open figure drawing class at our local Community Center. During the last couple weeks, I brought illustration board and gouache, some colors mixed up already, to force myself to just deal with shapes and value. Lots of fun!
