|Painting from the west side (Sound side) deck today|
Today I was itching to paint! The light was almost blinding it was so intense. Everything was brilliant blue and white only slightly interupted by the gray green of the land and buildings. We are located on a neck of land less that a quarter of a mile wide. We are bordered by Currituck Sound on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Talk about brinksmanship!
If you could have experienced the skies here today it would have seemed pointless to paint anything else. I decided to paint from the west side of our house overlooking the Sound because it was very windy and I was able to find a shady spot with protection from the strong southerly gusts. Thunderstorms were threatened and I wanted to be able to move quickly remembering a close call this time last year!
