Daily Paintings #1 and #2

I just spent about 3 months doing quite a bit of teaching and not much studio work.  Now the teaching is more-or-less finished, and I've decided to kick-start the summer by doing a month of daily paintings.  Here are the first two, simple views from the back yard.

Daily Painting #1 - May 16, 2016

Placing the compositional elements as minimally as possible:

The painting in several steps: 

That lovely dappled light is from the tree I sit under, it's unfortunately not part of the painting: 

Finished work on the studio wall: 

Daily Painting #2 - May 17, 2016

Love both of them. Great idea. I am going to try not committing to anything for not quite a month until I start teaching again. But of course that is when thousands of opportunities flood in to the vacuum!

Thanks Barbara! Taking a break for almost a month sounds like an excellent plan - and if anything does come up you have already the work for it :)
