MORNING LIGHT oil on canvas,12x16

3/21/10 Almost plein air... I painted this from my hotel room window early Sunday morning. I started out the door and saw this bautiful scene, but it was about 36 degrees with a very strong wind, so I didn't paint outside, but through my window. I hated to leave this beautiful place, but I packed up my things and drove back to Lufkin--about 3 hours away.

This is so great! When it's too cold I often read or go for a walk. Great idea!

What a beauty!!
It has a slightly surrealist quality.
You painted en pleine fenetre. ;)

Hi, Pam and Jala! Thank you so much for your comments. Glad for online translators... I'll remember that one (window). I read a good bit, too, and often paint en plein fenetre when it's unpleasant outside.

Good job, Ann. We should have stayed with you & shared your window. Thanks for your comment on the still life.
