Urn - oil on canvas - 12"x10" - sold (image to be updated soon)
Created this piece in the studio late last night after painting outdoors all day yesterday.

During the last couple of months I have been working mostly from my studio, and while this can be a great space, it is a welcome change getting outdoors to paint.

Plein air painting is very energizing - the changing light and atmosphere make it a really exciting challenge and a great contrast from the controlled environment of a studio space.

As you can see I didn't make it to Barcelona on Tuesday morning but no matter because the summer is surely here.

Made three plein air studies yesterday while basking in the late spring/summer light.
Looking forward to posting these images over the next couple of days.

As you know Most of my work is created in one sitting but with this piece above I feel the addition of a couple of glazes may more accurately describe and capture the impression of the ceramic.

Will post a new photo of the work shortly and let you know.

Plan to leave for Spain this coming Monday - fingers crossed!
