No matter how challenging the scene is that you are painting from life outdoors (plein air), I choose to be a Kentucky artist who follows the footsteps of Kentucky frontiersman Daniel Boone. "I have never been lost. But I was bewildered for three days."
I could have been lost with moving water, reflections, and all that green. But I chose a few more days of bewilderment to finalize this study that started at Raven Run Nature Sanctuary, between Lexington and Richmond, Kentucky.
The lesson is to never give up. Even though this outdoor adventure turned into more hiking than painting, the day could never fail when your studio is outdoors, blue skies, 70 degrees, with wildflowers in full bloom, birds singing, and the sound of rushing water during the 45 minutes of painting.
