(7.5x11)
Some days subjects to paint suggest themselves everywhere you look; those seem to make the best paintings, e.g., my Super Tuesday painting subject just sprung itself on me. Other days, like today, I feel stumped ... So I went to a couple of photos I took yesterday while walking the dog.

Lovely, and lovely. And I really appreciate that you make your pics show up nice and big so we can see how they're put together. I like your loose, washy style.

Laura - I discovered your blog when you posted to Sarah Elizabeths blog. Your work is breath taking. I think I will put it in favorites a return when I have time to explore all the older posts. You write very well about the art; which is a difficult task at best. Thanks, Bill

Thanks, Tracy. I'm trying to keep my landscapes as loose as I can stand, hoping the paints themselves will help me along by running and blending in interesting ways. I still can't let go so much in still lifes ... though I have finally gotten over thinking it's a "mistake" if one color bleeds into another!
Hi Bill. Thanks for commenting--I believe person to ever mention my writing! I started the blog as a conversation with my bff Robin and wrote with her in mind; now that other people are visiting (yay!), I'm struggling a bit with who my audience is and what I should say! Somedays I have nothing! I'm really just making an effort not to be overly self-critical.

oops, Bill, of course I meant to write: I believe "you're the first" person to ever mention my writing!

These are both gorgeous landscapes, Laura! Your work is always loose, fresh and you maintain your whites very well - admirable!
