Plein Air Painting on a Stool by a Creek.
I was itching to try a new hiking stool that I had purchased and I drove around for a while before picking this spot. This stream was near a road I travel quite often. I often had thought it was a pretty place but never really stopped to enjoy it due to the absence of a place to park and ultimately the lack of a companion trail to hike along. In other words, it was a nice spot but it was only a spot. Not an adventure.
Sometimes we just need a little prompt to see things differently.
The stool and the desire to paint did that for me this time. Since I was pretty close to the road, I did get a few curious looks as to what I was doing but I didn't mind. Once I got immersed in creating time really sped by and I only quit because it became too dark to see any contrast.
