Lucky moments: being there late at the beach and the kids are not 'whining enough to pack up'.. yet... and to create, to savor a moment in paint!
It's rare, still being there late and to be able to catch that shine of evening sun on the water. Because you don't always see it. Most of the times I had to run and drive home before this golden moment. Seizing the moment when you are there, having your gear there, it's one of the most lucky things for an outdoor painter.
