Couple recent Plein Air Paintings

These are a few recent plein air paintings. "Plein Air" means "open air" and refers to paintings and studies done in natural light on location, painting directly from the subject. These works are often looser than my studio work because of the need to paint fast before the light changes. I sometimes will visit a location several times to finish a large plein air painting. I also use these outdoor paintings as reference material for larger studio paintings.

I was wondering how my neighbour could save a fortune on her credit cards. Now I too have the secret.
