When Grass Grows Wild, 12x12

"When Grass Grows Wild", 12x12" Pastel on sanded paper

The weather for the past couple of days has been the best in 9 months, so plein air painting was tops on my calendar. This was painted at Fanno Creek Park, a community path that runs the distance of a business park in town. Eager to get out and paint, I arrived without my tripod adaptor, so I made due with my pochade box on the ground and me sitting crossed legged. Ugh! Why am I so forgetful these days?


Tonight I'm off to celebrate the Lake Oswego Chronicle with about a hundred other artists. Hope to see some of you there!

Thanks Rahina!
In a few open sectors in my town there is always wild grass growing, and right now it is very colorful with dapples of Queen Anne's Lace throughout. Looking at it almost makes me want to sneeze!
