Here's my Nibblefest entry on ebay for this month..(ebay search NFAC..this month's them was "On The Farm"). This was done plein air in Bracken County. I had told some of the folks at EBSQ that I had several little jumping bugs commit suicide on my painting while I was painting it. This painting session, I forgot to bring my chair. No biggie (I thought) because I had a quilt with me. So I picked a spot under a shade tree between the horse fence and the tobacco field (there's a tractor path there). I guess because I was so low to the ground every little jumping bug seemed to make it into my paint, on the canvas, on me, in my bag...it was very frustrating. I doubt that I'll forget my chair again!! I like to sit in one shaded spot and just move my chair vantage and paint. I don't like my plein air easel so I didn't bring it. I just hold the painting in my hand and I have an Artbin travel bag that housed my paint/solvents etc. When I get the money, (hopefully soon!) I'll be getting a Guerrilla Pochade box. I already have it picked out waiting in a cart online. Anyway, I smoothed the bugs out and this painting is what I was left with. I do love it out there...bugs and all!
