Every now and then, our plein air group goes to Volkening Heritage Farm to paint. I was so lucky to stumble upon this scene of a young girl pausing in the doorway of a century-old barn in the middle of her very busy day. Naturally, she didn't linger there long. Modern technology came to the rescue and I snapped a quick photo of her before she slipped away.

$60, Oil on Gessoboard
I painted this one for the Daily Paintworks challenge this week, which was to balance a stack of something and paint it. I used tons of thick paint and a palette knife, which meant that I ended up with more paint on myself than on my canvas by the time it was all through. I thought of the title "Nesting Time" as we prepare to send our youngest off to camp tomorrow. Now it's nesting time for the empty nesters!

$125, oil on gessoboard
Well, the lavender color on the side of the hill is actually from scrub oak, but scrub oak in a painting title does not evoke the romance that lavender does! I have entered this painting in a new challenge for me-- A Day Not Wasted June challenge. The photograph is supplied by a professional photographer, and artists interpret it and send in their entries. Should be fun!

Yesterday I joined my plein air friends in Crabtree Forest Preserve to paint next to the lagoon. The temperature and the mosquito count climbed quickly. We painted intently to make the most of our short time available. Nothing could be heard but the calls of hundreds of birds. What a great morning!
