This warm and sunny morning, I have been sitting outside under the umbrella on my deck to paint, and despite the mosquitos, who are enjoying the moisture after all the rain we've had (and my blood!), I found it was a really relaxing way to work. So if you haven't sketched or painted outside for a while and your weather is good, take yourself out and enjoy the fresh air. Infinitely more inspiring than four walls.
This last drawing is a semi abstract african violet, and once again was not quite where I wanted it to be, but where that place is, is slowly emerging.
