If it were not for my commitment to the Daily Paintworks Challenge I would have skipped this one.  I’m not terribly inspired by the image of a young woman texting on her cell phone even if her hair is blowing nicely in the wind.

Making Contact - Watercolor Portrait

Now that I am caught up with my Daily Paintwork Challenge submissions I am going outside to pick up the twigs and branches that have fallen to the ground during the last month of rain and wind storms.

Then …. if the sun comes out I will paint outside.  I wish that I had Wednesdays off instead of Thursdays.  I would love to join the local en plein air painters on their weekly outings.
