It was the summer that pleine air painting saved my life. I sat at a cafe in a strip mall, saw this scene across the street, and was captivated. The row of trees, the church tower and the street/lawn stripes excited me compositionally. I had just noticed how stripey landscape painting was, which is a strength if you want a placid calming, picture that flatlines the mind; but I wanted to mix up that practice by emphasizing the horizontal stripes and still breaking the calm. Calm is for chumps.
