Woke up this morning to pouring rain. I wanted to go for a run but didn’t want to be washed away so I painted instead. I completed two small (7″x10″) paintings. I have a stack a mile high of photos taken over the years of landscapes I would like to do and today was the day to start. One is of Yellowstone and the other one is of Farmington Bay on the Great Salt Lake. I am now hooked on doing these small paintings and might start another one before the day is over.
