i sucked it up and stood in the sun for a few hours, dragging painting gear with me. luckily this beautiful place has a handy parking lot and rest room nearby. these are 8x10" studies, each took about 20 or 30 minutes to complete. it felt good to be outside, and it felt good to paint. i have really not painted with any seriousness in about 2 (gulp) years. so here you go. i feel pretty good about them. the third one is not shown...my brain lost all conscious ability after the first two!!
