Thursday, April 4, 2013: Finally painting this view of Mansfield directly after a great demo by Anneline Beaukencamp at the Essex Art League's monthly meeting. Sunny with temperatures around 50 degrees F with a bit of wind and I was all inspired by Anneline's enthusiastic demo, so I decided to go for a larger size. Favorite quote of the day from Anneline: "I try not to think too much when I paint." I couldn't agree more! If I think too much, it seems to slow me down and block the creative energy. Must be that she's an intuitive painter, too. I had fun staying loose, enjoying the process. Mansfield still had snow on it and the sky was lovely, so I chose a lower horizon to emphasize the mountain meeting the sky.
