Today was one of those days.
I need sleep, ok?
But the evening was beautiful, and I got to go out and paint. I didn't have much time (it was probably around 7:30 when I started) so I had to find a place close by and not too complicated. Fortunately, I live in one of the most beautiful places ever, and the light in the evening makes anything look gorgeous.

Spring Wheat Plein Air, 8 x 10" oil on linen
 I picked a field of spring wheat, loving how the heads caught the light, and the backdrop of the bluff-tops and distant fields.
 Word of the day: awns. The bristles or beards of the grain. Not painted in detail here, but they are lovely!

I set up in the shade of this shed. The weather-vane is inaccurate, but I like it anyway. :)

Sleep time...
