For any plein aire painters, you may enjoy the story behind this painting.
My friend Maryann and I had planned to paint together
at an old adobe home site where an acquaintance lives.
We each packed our art supplies, snacks, coffee;
we met early morning as planned, ready to go!
I unpacked my paints, my easel, my turp can, my palette,
and...oh no! where are my brushes?
Yep, forgot the brushes.  However I did have a couple of paper towels,
found a stick on the ground and went to work.
The result is today's posting
