“let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. it will not lead you astray.” ~ rumi
.
on these days painting in -9 degrees and again at 6 or so above, i feel reminded of my earliest days of exploration, and running imagination, whilst playing outside with my brother on the old farmhouse acre we lived. it was small, but felt so vast to us youngsters. with a pasture, and a barn full of horses (belonging to its borders) , a pond and a creek at our ready, just on the other side of the barbed wire fence. but through the low, white, slightly askew wooden gate we would go to find our next adventure.
.
i realized my heart becomes filled with joy in the outdoors, and i am most thankful to have the chance to paint it. this is my winter sport 🎨 πŸ˜‰ thank you for following along. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’™

Back in the studio today giving consideration to the works i would like to make bigger from the studies painted these past couple of days. the snow is coming again, and i look forward to holing up in the studio to paint all that i took in. we saw some beautiful snow covered landscapes, and glorious light casting an array of pinks and blues and purples and yellows across the white blanket that is making up our tundra like surroundings. i hope i can do the “winter light” the justice it deserves.
.
don’t worry, our cold, outdoor adventures will resume as soon as the sun comes out again on monday!!
.
until then, stay warm. and if you’re somewhere sunny, tag me in your post, i want to see someone tanning! β˜€οΈ .

With a #pleinair outing scheduled for monday with @tylermurphyart in preparation for an upcoming show @montanagallery. naturally, i wanted to practice. it took me about 2-ish hours to get up the courage to get outside to paint today. it was -7 degrees when i did this quick #allaprima piece. πŸ₯Ά
it took me longer than anticipated (45 mins) as i picked a subject a bit too complex (for me) in such cold conditions. thank goodness for the sun, good winter boots, and lots of wool layers!! .

i’ve been wanting to do a study of the entry at the ranch for awhile, and am glad i just went for it!! i did give this small painting lots of sky in consideration of an upcoming show with a focus on the montana sky. .
hope you like this lil’ study:
