Reflections, Butler Park, Matthews, NC

8x10, oil on canvas panel

Now that the weather is so delightful, I will be painting plein air more.  It's perfectly ok to paint from photographs.  I do it all the time.  But there is nothing comparable to getting
outside where you have ALL the information right in front of you.

Then there's the problem of what to leave out.  It's an excellent exercise for
the serious, and not so serious, painter.

Butler Park is just a few miles from my house, and it has so many painting possibilities.
There is a horse farm as you leave the park, and I am hoping to
get permission to paint there.
