-Finished a painting at the Oceanside Lagoon. The Lagoon is beautiful, it is a water inlet from the ocean with the colorful grasses growing from it. My boys were with me during this lesson with Rita and it was quite a challenge to focus on painting. I'm surprised I finished it, but I think next time I'll just stay home if I have them with me. =)
-This last Friday we had talked about going to a vegetable stand but the weather proved dreary so we met at Rita's studio she shares with Scott W. Prior (another wonderful painter!) to paint a still - life. This is currently in the works.
-I decided I needed to take what I've learned in the lessons and attempt to do some plein air paintings on my own. And it proved successful! I was juried into the Southern California Plein Air Painter's Association Aquatics show. Praise God! I'll be dropping off those paintings tomorrow.
I'll work to get those paintings up here tomorrow or Tuesday.
