At Long Last, Back to Plein Air
'MOONFLOWERS'
An Original Plein Air

I have not been able to get out to paint en plein air
in ages, so when a friend called me this afternoon to let
me know that the moonflowers were blooming in
the shade of her shed,  I packed up a minimal 
amount of supplies and went up to paint.  
I liked the soothing palette of colors, and the relatively
simple design of this scene...and of course 
those wonderful flowers.  It's good to be getting
back to normal!

Claire,
It is so great that you can get out and paint again. I'm sure you were going through withdrawl. Love your moonflowers!
