Bowmans Bay near Deception Pass, WA, plein aire December 16, 2015.  I could only work for about two hours as it was about 40 degrees F,- my hands got too cold- I need to find a way to preserve dexterity and warmth!

With this piece, I amplified two heart drawings done by my 4 year old daughter and worked off brush technique by looking at the paint strokes that had accumulated on the walls surrounding my work area that I use to wipe off paint on my brushes.  The composition is methodically executed to look unintentional.
