Monday Posting

Still managing to keep a painting a day, although the first one I did yesterday ended up wiped off. Guess that happens. I had attempted a view of Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, Utah, but for some reason, even though I've painted it several times before, this one just did not work. A couple of hours in, I decided it was never going to work so off it came. What replaced it on the board was something totally different. In fact a departure from my normal subjects - I painted a single water lily floating in a dark pond. This photo was taken at the Zilker Botanical Gardens some time ago. I had always meant to paint it, but somehow never got the nerve up. I'm glad I finally did it - I thought it turned out well and I liked it.

Saturday's painting was another Colorado scene from one of our many trips to cooler climes. This one was a fairly cloudy day but the sun came out and illuminated it for a brief moment.
