Today was gorgeous in the north country. It was at least 70 degrees, maybe warmer, with bright skies and a slight breeze. The air smelled fresh and wonderful. I just didn't want to sit inside and paint, so I went to Adirondack Lake and Byron Park and did two plein air paintings. In the morning, the skies were blue and pink and lavender, but in the afternoon, they were tumbling with clouds. To be outside painting is the best relief for anything, as far as I can tell.
