When we left the second hunt scene painting, anyone could see the remains of whacky drawing. Some modifications may have improved it. It's a lesson for me in maintaining the excitement of the day the foxhunters started out. Let's see the latest stage........

Today the Alabama Plein Air Painters visited Decatur, and we were hosted by the wonderful farm of Carol and Jack O Neal in Priceville. Painting outdoors has its challenges, but today the February weather was cooperating. We had a beautiful white ante bellum house, log cabins, red barns, cows, and a pond to choose for painting. I turned to one of the oldest trees on the property - an old cedar.
Yes, winter has its beauty.
And we get to paint there again tomorrow!
