The past week has been amazing...this autumn weather is my favorite and being able to paint outside is a real treat. Daily my easel has been transported into our kitchen and back out onto the deck which has been such a wonderful way to work. I can see the easel from a distance our livingroom which has been helping me to see little adjustments that are needed as they are needed. I'm beginning to think the easel along with my little pochade which holds my art supplies will stay in here throughout the winter or at least part of it as there are two natural light sources (a window and French doors) and they face the north which is the best painting light.
I'm still struggling with titles for these paintings but have been getting some great ideas such as using names from vintage fashion plates, books or the historical names of grandmothers. Sometimes the naming can be a bit nerve wracking but collaborating and getting input from others is making this process much more pleasant. Hmmmm...I can't wait to see where this leads.
