It was such a gorgeous day here in the DC area, that it would have been a waste to paint inside. So I got out my plein air gear, and sat in the neighbor's backyard. The sun was in and out, and I was amazed at how much color change there was in the red maple. Sometimes it looked deep orange and sometimes a dark purple red. Just beautiful. I want to try it again.

Flash Sale, Five Paintings to Clear - SOLD

Some older pieces to clear out today.  So, here we go. I should also note that I really don't mind if you resell these, as a couple of my collectors do, who have more patience to wait for a sale than I do. As long as you use my name on the work, I'm fine with that. Buy more than one, pay shipping once.

Loose Goose Hydrangea - SOLD

SOLD at $22 plus $8 shipping.

One just for my mailing list. I had a bunch of pinks and lavenders left over from the cherry blossoms, so did this one to use up all that precious (and expensive) paint. I really just let loose with it. Can you tell?

Blossoms Abstracted - SOLD

This is the last of my cherry blossoms, since they are drooping and dropping petals everywhere. I wanted to try using a different set of pink colors, including English Red.
I thought it might be fun to show you what's underneath, so here's a little progressive series. The painting underneath was an exercise for values and colors, with color patches at the bottom.

You can still see the lemon, bowl and mug, with color patches.

Progress, things are disappearing.

Still a bit of the lemon showing. I let a touch of it be the center of the last blossom.

Missing branches here, but almost done.

It's such a deluge outdoors today, that my yard looks like a rice paddy. My poor pansies are underwater.
So I used the same blossoms as yesterday, but put a sky behind them.
(Even though they are still in the vase.) My mantra today was "Messy, drama, contrast; messy, drama, contrast..."

We have some lovely blooming trees in the neighborhood, which I've been watching so I could do some plein air work, but now it's raining and supposed to rain tomorrow as well. So no outdoor painting. I got to have my granddaughter this past weekend, so no painting over the weekend either, though we did some outdoor things together. Sidewalk chalk, took a long walk, climbed trees (her, not me), hide and seek...found a parakeet loose.

So today, I walked up in the rain and clipped a few sprigs of the blossoms, maybe they are cherries, I dunno.
And here you go.

 Neighborhood tree I was going to paint.

Here's Kayla in a dogwood tree. She's a tomboy who loves pretty dresses. At 6, she's as rough and tumble as they come, but still loves to dress up. Here's the parakeet, below: (and K with chalk on her nose.)
