How could I not take advantage of this beautiful, warm day? Yes, I really should have been doing housework, and I still have ornaments to put in the attic. But, I only had two and a half hours left of this glorious afternoon to paint - and I just couldn't waste it! After getting chicken and dumplings in the crockpot (by special request), Michaela and I headed out to this winding creek which crosses 175th street between Mission and Nall. I have wanted to paint this location for years! I used my french resistance easel, which I've not set up since my last event. I didn't even check the palette I pulled from the freezer! I really need to scrape the dry paint off this one - and reload some of the paints! As always, I just make due with what I have, although it would have been easier with a few of my favorites to dip into. It felt just like spring or there! I am going to remember this day when the ice storm rolls in! Painting number 1462 in 1462 days.
