9/4/15 Notes to Myself: I've been noticing the change in the light over the past month. It seems to me to be more "cool" in nature. This always signifies for me the onset of Fall and a shift away from Summer. In tandem with that comes the reminder of back to school and the energy of noticeable change. The painting I've featured here seemed fitting to me with the advent of "back to school". I started painting this about a month ago in preparation for a "paint out" event in October in the historic township of Chesterfield, NJ. Unplanned in terms of using it as part of a blog post, but it seems quite fitting. This is the Crosswicks Library located in the lovely historic town of Crosswicks tucked away in central NJ. A true little gem! The light changed rapidly that day. This is one of the challenges in plein air painting. But I like what I captured. It resonates with me and the shift at this time of year.
