It was a wonderful day outside painting today. I finished two and this one is my favorite. Both paintings were in Dormont. I started my day after dropping the kids off at school, after getting home I gathered all of my plein air gear and walked to the Door Stop with Ana for breakfast. We both jaded eggs Benedict, Afterward we parted ways and I walked back up a huge hill to this amazing spot overlooking Potomac towards Oakland which you can see in the very background. I painted this spot earlier this week. I tried out a new paint pallet including some earth tones which I don’t often use, along with Cobalt turquoise. Right as I was finishing up, someone came out to talk to me, discussing how he was visiting his mother, it was an interesting talk but I was eager to get another painting done in this amazing light. I packed up my things and walked about a mile, past my house towards KO high school. I found a stunning veiw of light peeking above the clouds and mostly everything else in a warm shadow on the ground. While painting I got to meet a wonderful woman with her chickens and a few others walking their dogs, nice talks. It occurred to me how great plein air painting is, in that we get to talk to people that we may not other wise get to meet, we get to share these public places, it’s always an exciting event for those who don’t feel suspicious, which is also common, but over all it’s such a positive exercise. Days spent plein air painting are always wonderful.
