Lovely Day

Was so excited to get out to paint on a day  without that killer heat  that I just threw the color on there enjoying the process.  This is everything contrary to what I've been taught lately - no restraint, hardly any neutrals, composing on the fly instead of being well thought out.   But it was so enjoyable to paint on location again.   This pond will probably be all grown up the next time I see it.   The property is for sale.

  1. Robin, I lOVE this painting. It is so full of color, brightness and joy. It was good to "break the rules"!

  2. I had to laugh because I can relate to that. I love it anyway and the colors are wonderful!
