Wildwood Marsh

8"x8" oil/panel

We had sun in the morning and I went with a predominately warm palette with the exception of the cool shadowed mountain in the distance. It was breezy and cold. In fact I sacrificied my umbrella when a strong gust came by. I held everything down not considering what might happen. Yep, it looked like a segment on the weather channel. The umbrella turned inside out. Shrapnel. Don't think I can save it. Lots of bent parts. The rest was painted with palette in sun and board in shade. A no no but so be it. The color is a bit off probably because of the sun effect but overall I think I'm at least a bit satisfied.

Lovely pastel-y colors. You made me laugh--"segment from the Weather Channel," "shrapnel"...hehe.

Wow!!!!! What beautiful COLOR!!!!!!!!
And I can relate to your weather related story. Sorry to hear about the demise of your umbrella. At least that was all it took (permanently).

Spring is on the way, after this huge snow that is.

Thanks Jala, I couldn't resist. Sometimes writing is as much fun as painting.

Thanks Loriann, it looks like you guys are going to get snow and us not so much. Can't wait to see how it plays out.
