'Roughing It'. Feb, 24 2012. - Me plein-air painting.
In a previous blog post,
I mentioned I'd been become
a little rusty at plein-air painting.
For the past few years I'd given myself
a number of reasons and excuses
to believe in why I couldn't go plein-air painting.
Though in my heart of hearts
I knew none of them to be true.
None of them held any ground any longer.
For my love for plein-air painting
had never tarnished.
Like a coveted dream it was always there.
Determined to bring back
the shine I once had,
I've promised myself
to plein-air paint
as much as possible.
I believe in a good balance.
A good balance of
studio and plein-air painting,
working hand in hand,
each brush stroke helping the next
to become more refined and more skilled.
These are the efforts to become
a better painter all around.
Cheers, ~ Polly ~
