Summer Bounty

August 27, 2019

Wow, it's the end of August already!  I realize that I haven't posted a journal entry in awhile--all good because that means I've been too busy painting. I feel busy as a bee with art this year--some gouache, some plein air oils, marker sketching on location, and most recently "pochade".  Pronounced "PO-SHOD", it basically is a french term for a rough or quickly executed sketch or study.  I've been wanting to paint more spontaneously without all the equipment and planning---at home or on location.  So I found a little pochade box just for this purpose.  Everything I need fits into a small tote bag.  The paintings are a mere 6 x 8, which can be challenging to paint so small.  But on a whim I can get painting quickly.  Follow me on instagram @gigi.godfrey to see more summer works.  Enjoy the sunshine.  Thanks for your love of art.
