September and October are my favorite months for Plein Air painting. The changing season transforms greens to reds and summers' cool light to much warmer colors. The crowds have departed by the end of Labor Day, allowing for more peace and parking.

After many years in my studio painting monotypes I find painting outside to be a very dramatic change. The challenges of changing light and all of nature to decipher is at once daunting and intoxicating. I am fascinated by how different 'real' light is as opposed to what the camera sees. It is endlessly engaging to try to define what the color of light is as it changes from moment to moment, right before your eyes. Whith my paint and brushes, I am always chasing the spinning world and it's unending  unfolding. Nothing is more exhilirating!
