What a wonderful day for painting! Last night"s storms washed all the landscape clean. We went out to Disney's "happy place" to catch that sparkling morning light. My intention was to paint the barn, with the wildflowers surrounding it. Once I came to this spot, I knew I had to paint it instead. I braved the tall, wet grass to get this painting - and I stood in the shade of a tiny tree. It's a good thing I'm small! This painting won Best of Show tonight in the OPA paint out, and this painting has a new home with the owner of this pond! Painting number 1334 in 1334 days!
