When the morning rain showers paused, I knew I had limited time to paint outdoors. The sun poked through the clouds and everything in my garden exploded with color! So I hurriedly carried my easel, canvas, paints, and brushes outside. There wasn’t much time to paint with another shower approaching, so I painted using large & loose brush strokes in a colorful frenzy. I really enjoy how my painting captures a sense of place while still being free and thoroughly expressive.
