En Plein Air: Do You Remember Me? (Oli, 8 x 12)
I was driving down Tuckhoe Road slowly this morning to search for something to paint when around a hundred yard away at the end of a farm trail a horse standing behind the fence, staring at the road. I knew the owner but hesitated to paint him. My experiences told me he might not stay too long there. Finally I convinced myself: "So what? You can always scrape the canvas and start all over again if he leaves." So, I turned into the farm trail and hurried to set up. As a habit, I always paint mobile objects first. In spite of moving around, he didn't leave the spot before I almost got his image.
