A little over a month has passed since my last writing. Working steadily in my studio on one floral painting, while also sketching in my notebook from my mind's eye new compositions of autumn landscapes based on some of the forest preserves nearby. I'm excited to get started on them.
We were able to take a quick 3 day trip to Springfield and New Salem last week. Visited some historical sites and new ones pertaining to Lincoln's life. Took some photos of his village in New Salem. I don't foresee paintings with log homes in the near future, but I will add some of the walking paths, rivers and creeks into new compositions.
