It went from warm 85deg.summer to chilly 52deg autumn last night. And windy! It's supposed to warm up a little next week, and I'm excited about painting outside for a while. I'll do some autumn tree scenes and perhaps some creeks and ponds. There is a lot of horse riding activity near here, and the young lady riders, with their pink and blue blouses, are exciting to watch doing their jumping routines. I'm going to take photos of them and try to do some larger paintings of groups. Degas admirers, have no fear. In my opinion, nobody can even hope to approach his equestrian work, I just try to have fun. Mike.
