New Plein Air: Mom's Patio

Mom's Patio, Connecticut, 2012, oil on linen, 12 x 9 inches 
I made a quick one day trip to Connecticut yesterday to be there for the birth of my first niece. Yes I'm an uncle to a healthy baby girl! I didn't have much time to explore areas near my parents' home for some plein air painting, so I set up shop in their back yard and painted my mother's sitting area, tucked away in a little corner in the back of the house. I needed to work quickly and more painterly...I'm still not sure how I feel about it but I do like the sense of light and shadows that made it to the painting. More to come.
