Looking Through the Trees
Watercolor on Masa Paper. 7.75x5"
The weather has finally become warm enough to go outside to make watercolors. Mother's day was cold and rainy. The day after was only slightly better. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday I had to prepare work for a couple of shows. Friday I worked on an oil portrait. Yesterday I went out to paint. This is the first of two efforts.
There is a small park near my home with a tot lot, basket ball court, and tennis court. There is a circular path around grassy lightly wooded area. The kids were out with all the energy bottled up from being indoors anticipating better weather. Both courts were busy with activity. The tot lot was in heavy use and kids on bikes whipped around the circular path with the exhilarated freedom bikes bring to kids. People were pushing strollers and walking dogs.
It's the revelry of spring. Green has returned. The heat is held in abeyance, the humidity too. It's perfect! I have always said that I am very easy to please. Just spoil me with perfect. Yesterday was it!
