"These Boots Weren't Made for Painting"

As was chronicled in my last post,  I pointed out that plein air artists are a hardy lot, willing to brave the elements and other challenges as they reflect their creativity on canvas, paper or board.  But one thing a plein air artist strives to do is to be comfortable.  And in the case of this intrepid painter, her weathered patriotic boots just weren't accomplishing this prerequisite.  As a result, we have a Barefoot Picassa bravely perched on a concrete vantage point jutting out over the raging Puloxi River in Glen Rose TX.  The point here is that the creativity of a plein air artist extends far beyond the easel, especially when it comes to maintaining 'happy feet'.
