I have been dreaming of building painting platform to go on top of my car for 15 years. Yesterday I decided I would go ahead and make it, instead of painting. Today I got to test it out. It was so fun to be up so high! The elevation stretches the foreground and middle-ground, so that I don't have a small band of land and a huge sky. Next, I am going to make some painting panels that are short and wide, like a panoramic photo so I can get the compositions I have been desiring!

Last week the sun had brought all of my landscape painting friends out to the beaches to enjoy the weather. An abrupt shift brought us thick fog and and cold, strong enough to wish for a scarf! Instead of the brilliant warm hues the colors became muted grays and browns.
