Back In The Saddle...

...well sorta. I didn't get much painting done over the holidays and as usual after a layoff, the urge to paint was pretty high as I got back in the studio last week. This craving; to mix color and slap some paint around presents a problem, before painting can commence at least a day of drawing and preparing the picture plane are required. That wasn't going to cut it, so I got out the watercolors (my medium of choice in the 90's) and after an hour of sketching I was ready to go. Three days later I had a painting. Itch scratched.
