New Plein Air Painting from my Deck

Plein Air Painting From Deck, 7 x 14 inches, Oil on Canvas
Copyright 2017 Mary Gravelle.
When the power goes out for a few hours midday, it's a great time to get outside and paint.

All troubles soothe as paint flows across the canvas. The cares of the world fade away as the beauty before my eyes takes center stage. I never tire of this view. Sir Kitty doesn't seem to mind it either as he sits in his blue chair. It's the first time he has hopped up into his beloved blue chair since we moved here. That simple act makes my heart flutter. He's home too.

Back to painting, the landscape takes on a personal relationship as I paint. After all the times I have admired this view, I feel more connected to that land now than before I painted it.

This painting is 7 x 14 inches, oil on canvas. For purchase inquiries, email
