The water lilies are just beginning to poke their leaves above the waters’ surface. Winter’s over!

Mid day paintings are so tough. Another flat light situation. Weather is moving in so there was a lot of high altitude moisture in the upper atmosphere producing an overall grayed down color palette.

I’ve been to this little pond three times now during this project and it has always greeted me with a new painting idea. Frogs are still very, very loud!

I painted this evening on one of the most gorgeous pieces of land around. There were so many paintings that it required more than one painter to keep up with it. But this is what I did this time.
