The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

First "Auto de Plein Air" of the Season

Not much to look at but I had fun! I spent about 10 minutes driving around scoping out possibilities then about 40 minutes painting this. Really need some work on depicting water. The new thumbox worked out wonderfully, as did all my accoutrements in the passenger seat.  It was still too cold and windy to be out. As you can see, there is still very little green to be seen. However, I did see some redbuds in bloom. They may be my next victim -- er, subject.
And a little ACEO I did yesterday. Usually, the daffodils are gone by now, but here, they're just starting to come up. Only a few early bloomers can be seen in our walks around the neighborhood with the big red dog.
