Yesterday my plein-aire group painted at Hillside Gardens. We paint there about once each month and have our show there annually. There are always hundreds of pots. I've painted them many times over the years, but am always fascinated by their colors, shadows, reflections, and the way they're displayed which allows for constant variety in composition. As always w/ plein-aire painting, the light changes so quickly which forces me to lay in my big shapes and paint only what's important.

I recently received the Bella Sinclair Award from Laurel Daniel. Laurel was the first person that I didn't know personally who commented on my blog. I always appreciated that. This award is for "Friendship, Sisterhood, Sharing & Caring." I want to share this award with the following artists: Debbi Smith-Rourke who regularly comments on my blog, Kimberly Conrad who started Daily Painters of Colorado, and Natalie Italiano teacher at Studio Incamminati and soon to be blogger.
