I went out to explore, hike and paint this morning after waking up at 5am. I ended up at Simmons Mill in Little Compton..............I have never stayed to paint there before because the place is posted with a million signs warning all who enter wear at least 200 square inches of fluorescent material. What luck that today it is not yet hunting season and I felt safe enough to hike in about a mile and paint. I am growing more comfortable with the 8x10 size. The sky was wonderful and the air was actually chilly following yesterday's warmth.
