I walked over to Rhodes today to spend a perfectly lovely afternoon painting outside. I've been meaning to get over there but hadn't yet, and now I'm wondering what took me so long. I'll definitely be going back, and I love painting destinations that are in walking distance for me.
I spent the afternoon and evening there, since my new Meeman Center class started this evening as well. I love their adult education classes. The profs are great, teaching things that really interest them but that they may not get to teach to undergrads, and the whole group of folks who take classes are so widely read and intelligent that the discussions are great. Meeman is a great verbal offset to my largely visual work.
(I posted just the first sketch I did. The second one needs just a couple of small adjustments that I don't have time to make tonight, so I'll post it later.)
