First Priming Coat

First priming coat on all canvases, starting Friday night and finishing Saturday night. The smaller ones were primed i the house, as it got too cold in the studio overnight. I'm sticking to the +49 F rule. I've never had anxiety about starting paintings, at least not too bad. But for some reason I am questioning everything for these. What relevance do landscape images have? Should I even be using oil paint? Longs Peak as a consistent subject or not? Is it contemporary at all? I guess these questions are why this blog exists, and more to the point, why I'm painting in the first place.
