I spent last weekend on the Eastern Shore oil painting en plein air. It was a windy, cold weekend, and though I don't typically think of myself as a terribly hardy person, I think I grew a bit more resilient. What's neat about painting is while I'm doing it I don't notice anything else, including whether or not I'm cold. It all comes down to the fact that our attention can only be on one thing at a time. As one of my teachers says, "The quality of our life is determined by the focus of our attention." And, wile I'm painting, nothing else exists, just nature. No, me, I, mine, Juliane etc. That's why I love it. I lose myself in it. Though it was cold, we were lucky to have sun almost every day... thus these gorgeous colors! This piece was painted at the docks of the Village of Easton overlooking the striking gold grasses next to the water. Oil on Panel. Please enjoy.
