There is much to be said for a weekend of almost continual painting. Throw in sunshine and warm breezes and it is idyllic.
The seascape I started on Saturday came together sweetly and I was hard pressed to leave the studio for a minute. So I didn't.
I love the feeling of painting with intensity mixed with casual abandon. Don't ask me how that blend of feelings can coexist because I can't tell you but I can say it is most delicious. The painting is almost done. It just waits for highlights and a few shadows, a tweek here and there. What fun it has been.
