 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!
