Now that I have to start thinking about packing up to go back to St. Louis, it's finally gotten warm enough to paint outdoors in a T-shirt. It is 76 degrees here on the panhandle this afternoon! I'd stay longer but I have an important doctor's appointment.
As with many trips, I find the view from my room quite memorable. This is my second painting of the view from my balcony. I like sitting in my room looking up river past this old tree and will miss it when I return to the frozen north.
You don't always have to find the "iconic" view of the area you are visiting; the familiar view will do just fine!
