We've had some fantastic weather this fall. Tomorrow's supposed to be sunny and in the 80's. Today it was in the low 70's but very windy. I tried out the Moleskine for the first one. The second is in the Arches sketchbook. I have a hard time with the Moleskine. The paper just doesn't accept the water like I want it to. I guess I have to adjust my approach when I use it.

While painting the farm scene in the previous post, Bob stopped by on his bike. He stayed and chatted for a while. He is a lover of life, having cycled from Florida to Michigan while in his 70's. I guess this was a smaller trip for him... Elyria to Valley City. Pretty amazing if you ask me. I told him I was going to paint his picture and gave him my web address. Hopefully he'll see this. Hi Bob!
