Hi BJ, How are you? Nice job on your new post...I haven't been out much...rain or clouds....maybe tonight:=)) Warm regards, chuck

Hi Chuck, I'm doing well. I'm still painting en plein air about once a week. We're seeing some yellow leaves appearing on the trees, so I know Fall is on its way. Cooler temps and colors other than "green-green" are just around the corner. Hope to see more paintings soon. :o)

It's been around 88 to 94 around here, except for this past week. I'd love to come to FL, but not in the Summertime. Talk soon :o)

Love the contrast!
finally cooling off some in the mornings here!

Thanks Fawn! Cool mornings mean more painting time. I love Fall with its colors, and especially the "plein air" friendly weather.
