I am off on vacation visiting the kids and grandchildren.
My hubby and I are excited because they have moved from Portland
and are now in Santa Cruz, CA. We know the area well and have
some fun times planned
As I will not have access to the computer easily I am placing this
on auction through daily Paintworks for a good reason.
I have had several paintings sell multiple times through Pay Pal but
David at DPW has now got a way to prevent that. I have to change
some things with Pay Pal and will do it when I return.
This was painted plein air. Because of the drought, the area farmers
had a one time water allotment to fill their irrigation ditches.
Things are bad for this farming community.
I love painting the river and ditches so
I dashed out to get this done.
A lot of clouds started to form and I thought it would actually rain
but so such luck. The sun merrily came and went causing my
patterns to change. I do not usually alter a plein air painting
but the bush bothered me. See original painting below.
Notice how it divides the bottom half in two
and the top part of the bush is too symmetrical.
Then I made it thinner
very well. I remembered some of the weeds and quickly
put some brush marks with a rigger resulting in the top painting.
I had to slap my hand because I would have kept fussing at it.
