Jimmy Longacre_subjective realist landscape paintings_ GOOD BEING ALIVE!

Spring, full sun, noontime, 80 degrees. Good being alive.  Drove out to meet friends to paint on a ranch.  The fence gate was locked, and the sun was quickly climbing to mid-morning.  I like to catch the light around nine.  Standing around wondering what to do.  I was all packed and ready, with no where to go.  I got in my car determined to paint.  It was eleven before I found a place to set-up.  Felt good just to go for the painting.  Mixing the paint and piling it on.  Good for my soul.
