I am NOT an outdoors-type painting person. Plein-aire painting is no fun for me, battling the wind, gnats and people who want to look over your shoulder. However, DRAWING outside is another matter. I love the immediacy of the quick sketch. Recouperating from some hospital junk, I was bored, bored, bored! I decided to do some sketching of a few interesting things outdoors, before the sun got too hot. (Yes, Tennessee in August is still uncomfortably hot, though the humidity is down a bit.) These are bits of old machinery and an old dog house from the neighbor's yard. Amazing the beauty in all things!
