I was visiting a friend who has many lovely plants both indoor and outside. This one was in the corner of her sun room. I happened to have my 5x7 pochade box in the car and did a quick color sketch. Guess there is something to the motto, "always be prepared." At this point as far as the little pochade box goes, another saying comes to mind. "Don't leave home without it." Alright, I''ll quit while I'm ahead in the sayings. So, what's in your wallet? I mean car, what's in your car?

Just a little makeup!

I've been painting but not posting, does this make me a poor multi-tasker? Maybe. The top painting was fun to do but my goal as always is to give the poor thing more life. This means richer color, lots more paint and get out of stiff mode. Reminds me of getting all gussied up and forgetting your makeup. Cosmetic's have been added and I do hope you see the improvement. OK, back to painting!
