So, the painting for today's post is one of my pieces from the Wayne Plein Air competition. "Blue Pot at the Tool Shed" was painted at this beautiful farm which was one of the sites open to us for the week. There were so many spots there that I could have selected. That was one of the problems ... there were so many choices ... it was difficult (and time-consuming) to select one. I'd painted this on Tuesday, our first painting day ... in the afternoon, and then returned there on Thursday afternoon to work more on the pot and chairs. Turned out that I pretty much touched all of the canvas on the second round. The contrasts and colors ended up so much better with that second afternoon of work.
"Blue Pot at the Tool Shed" is on exhibit, along with seven more of my paintings from the week, at the Wayne Art Center through June 30.
