waiting to dry

The sky is so amazingly blue, the sun is shining, and cool fresh air - the perfect October day! I am in the city but if I close my eyes I can see myself walking (or better - running and jumping) on a hill, dried grass around me, little stream far down... A little like 'Christina's world' from Andrew Wyeth which is one of the paintings I really love to see when I'm at the MoMa.
Up to the studio again and paint some more... 'Cause I work in al lot of layers and use lots of water it needs a long time to dry before I can apply the next layer. I am working on several paintings at the same time trying not waste any time, but a little pause ones in a while makes me reflect on that what I have painted so far...a little distance is good! Below you can see one of the paintings I am working on now (not revealing so much though...), for a show next month! I will tell you soon some more about that. Have a good Thursday everyone!!
