Splitting Wood

We needed to spend time cutting and splitting wood since winter is coming, but I am unable to help with that task as I am still recovering from surgery. But I went along and while my husband, daughter, and son-in-law were cutting, splitting, and loading wood, I sat in a chair and did two watercolors.

I'm not too skilled in watercolor (think maybe I should take some lessons) but it was a beautiful day and I was delighted to be out. So I did one painting of the hay field across the street from our property and another of the large wetland on the neighboring land. We didn't see it this time but we have seen an eagle flying over this wetland in the past.

6th Annual IPAP World wide Paint Out

Eleven hungry painters gathered at Salt Springs State Park for pancakes cooked over an open fire. All fueled up we then got out our easels and painted watercolors, oils, acrylics and pastels.

What a perfect day to practice our art along with painters in Italy, Canada, Alaska, Brazil and many places in between.

Look for our paintings on exhibit in the future near you.
