I've been enjoying painting out of my cigar box/pochade box. I used it when I first started painting. I was inspired to unearth it from a forgotten corner of my studio because of a recent blog post about small pochades by Thomas Kitts. I used my cigar box to paint this still life of forsythia (painted indoors --'expressively').
I live near Mt. Tabor park and there is a good spot where I've discovered I can practice painting the distant hills. I can walk here (though I'm pretty lazy when it comes to that steep grade!). I have an idea that it would be cool to paint from the same spot over and over. I just may try to find time for that in my schedule.
“ The same subject seen from a different angle offers subject for study of the most powerful interest and so varied that I think I could occupy myself for months without changing place, by turning now more to the right, now more to the left."—Paul Cézanne in a letter to his son, 1906
