|PEDERNALES RIVERBANK 8X10 oil on canvas panel|
Some plein air paintings are nice enough to frame and sell, others are just about doing the work. If you get out and paint regularly, you get past feeling like every painting has to be a success. It's a necessary exercise, a way of staying in shape to paint, and the only way to develop the skills to improve. So, with or without inspiration, I need to do the work, and I love it!
