With summer in full swing, I've been spending as much time as
possible outdoors, going to concerts and plays, walking from place to
place when I do my errands, and just finding every excuse for an
outdoor excursion. Landscape painting is another perk of the season.
There's something invigorating about stepping outside and sharing space
with your subject matter--breathing the same air, seeing the same light,
and having an in-the-moment experience with the landscape.
