Early morning painting En Plein Air. It is a cloudy day in Tucson and I typically would not go out to paint, but it was the last morning to go with my daughter Kadi who is a blooming artist, for 7 months. She is headed off on another around the world missions school, this time she is leading a group of 6-10 mission students. The painting needs some finishing touches in the studio – we got cold! I know, boo-hoo, from all of you in the Midwest and mountain states where it’s really cold, but hey 55 and cloudy in Tucson is really cold for us desert rats!
