Oh NO! September 1st!

I went back and mucked around on this painting of Island Pond. The sky and water were quite a bit darker before, giving the painting an unsettling aspect. I remember the day I was painting it I became very frustrated with the mountains in the background... the clouds kept sweeping across them changing the shapes and colors. Duh, I finally realized I had the power just to remove them. Sometimes paintings are much stronger with good editing.

I am so happy that I don't have to be anywhere today. First time in quite some time that I can putter around the house and paint.

Nice work Paula, love the cabbage and its cool colors. Look forward to seeing what you do in abstract!
