When Painters Get Together

Though friends tell me otherwise, it's been a chilly spring for me. Easter here was windy and it was nice to wear a coat. But everyone still wants to get out and get spring started.

When painters get together, I think they bring out the best in each other. So we selected this scene of another painter's backyard. It provided interesting information = buttercups, shadows on the bench, and that thin spring light before the leaves come out. There was plenty of detail we could use.

I love oil paint in all its' variations = thick, thin, globbed, smeared, dappled. But this called for a simple presentation. And we let our artist friend's bunny statue be a little surprise.
