This is one of the small plein air paintings I managed to do on location in Port Clyde, Maine this summer. It is only 9x12 and painted in a very suggested manner with little detail. That is generally what I try to achieve outdoors.....and if I'm lucky, some of that spontaneous feeling will be conveyed in the studio. It is something that I always consider, and pretend.....as much as is possible, that I am outside....minus the heat and adverse conditions. Sometimes it works very nicely.....sometimes it is something different, which is not always a bad thing.
