Forsythia at the Lake—Study, 6x8"
Well, one misty, overcast, drippy day I drove to local Lake Quannapowitt to paint "en plein air" from my car. Here you have it.
There's a story the painting doesn't reveal: while painting from my car I listened to the radio. The day warmed up as I was nearing the end of my painting session. It was humid and warm. I turned on the air (not a/c) and opened the windows. Suddenly my radio stopped working! YES! My battery died. Happily AAA came to the rescue in time for me to pick up my son from school. Silly me. Lucky me.
