Progress...

A change of plan...















I awoke early this morning to thunder; the forecast for today was for violent thunderstorms and wind gusts up to 50 mph....and I decided to opt out of the rain-or-shine art show today....to keep my artwork, my set-up and myself safe. I am beginning to work on the background of this painting at the moment....

Early this morning at Bald Mtn Pond...

























































What a glorious way to start the day!
I just LOVE my camera!

A busy painting day...









































I was able to do a lot of painting today and I fragmented it between the bluebird, the mural and did two feathers...and started another.....I had plans to finish the commission I am working on...ran out of time.Looking at the mural, I am thinking I need to mellow out the shadows and continue to put in contrast on and around the horses - when I drive by they are not clearly visible, it's "muddy"....for another day....
