Day 30 #rogertorypetersoninstitute I woke at 2:00 this morning to heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Rain in an RV is like a cross between popcorn and bubble wrap. I love hearing it, so it was a perfect send off for my last day.
I’ve debated what to paint for day 30. There are several scenes that I had in mind, but I kept returning to the welcoming light streaming from the building that I see every morning, just before daybreak. Cutter and I have walked by it in all weather conditions. This morning there was a little reflection on the ground from last nights rain. When I saw it I knew that this would be my last subject.
Thank you for following this adventure featuring this beautiful space. I painted today with a touch of sadness that this residency is over. I do hope that these paintings stir you to visit the Roger Tory Peterson Institute and discover what a treasure it is.
