This painting was done from an old photo of a place near a favorite fishing spot. I messed around with the color and texture quite a bit. It was one of those days that I needed to quit being so careful. I like the shimmery effect on the sandstone wall in the middle ground.

Well, I have been painting, just not posting because I haven't been very happy with the results, although there are a few I may post.
We had a blizzard yesterday and about 2.5 feet of snow on our deck this morning so it seemed like a great day to paint a summer scene. It was a good time, during which I took a break after each "step" to refresh my perspective and assess what I had done up to that point. It was pretty successful overall. I made myself a note of each step, particularly stopping to assess things. Tomorrow after work I will do another.
