Yay! Got me some time to paint!!! Here's the beginning of a 12x16 oil painting. Dee Dee, my fiance, modeled for it when we were hiking a few weeks ago. I'm going to try to make the background a geometric abstract version of the park we were in.
There's no trick to having an adventure if you spend a bunch of money, travel hundreds or thousands of miles, or pay someone to organize it. But the adventures that I find the most interesting are the ones you cob together yourself with available gear and friends and access by walking out your front door.
