So people think that I paint outdoors for fun.. Nope! I do it because it makes me a better studio painter. Studio painting is much more comfortable!(convenient food, no bugs, no sweat, no ants, no hot sun rays, no smelling like deet for the day) don't get me wrong, I love the great outdoors more than anyone, but just imagine that you are having to do your daytime job outside in 96degree heat. No pain, no gain.
