Afternoon on Abanakee

 12x16 Pastel on Richeson Gater Board - $175.00 (sold)

What a beautiful day it was yesterday - 70 degrees, sunny, slight breeze.  I started a painting in my studio, did an underpainting with mineral spirits and just couldn't wait for it to dry.  I was inpatient to start painting, so I put my portable easel and supplies in the car and headed to the back of Abanakee Lake, about three miles away from my home.  People were kayaking and swimming, the loons were vocal,  cars drove by and slowed down to watch my progress.  Two hours later I needed to pack up and head for home, very happy and content.
