Every once in a while I tear myself away from the studio and go out for a walk without my plein air easel. I actually go out for a walk just for the sake of the fresh air, the exercise, to hear the wind blow though the trees and feel the sun on my face.
Scenes like this remind me of that feeling of not needing to get anywhere in particular. In the fast paced world we live in these days I think it’s good to remember that we can actually give ourselves a little time to relax and enjoy ourselves.
For those of you who may be due for a walk in the country, it’s even better when you forget your mobile devices at home.
