I like to paint wherever I am and whatever I am doing if possible. Some folks call this doodling - you know, when you scribble while you are on the phone, etc. I take my paints wherever I go and even will paint on the beach while everyone else is busy doing the usual beach things. Long ago I thought there was nothing to paint there but nowadays I'll just paint whoever happens to be around and it's a great exercise at quickly noting where the light falls and anatomy etc.
Some people prefer knitting :-)
here are some beach doodles
soon I'll have to do some lake doodles but normally I just jump in, swim and back to the studio
I LOVE SUMMER
