We had the sun come out at Salmo Pond last week and the trees turned mostly yellow instead of green. My painting exaggerates this a bit, but, of course, that's part of the fun. I'm hoping the wind and rain doesn't make the leaves drop before we can get out to paint some fall scenes this week.

Upon showing up at last week's scheduled outing at McCarthy Park some of us discovered a huge cross country track event in progress and so we couldn't paint there. This was a source of aggravation to me but then Nan Zimdars send me an email describing how, despite driving to the park and being unable to paint, that she enjoyed the drive in the countryside. And on the following day because she had all her painting gear already packed and handy, she decided to do a quick painting of the southwest bike trail near her home. Turned out quite nice and so I thought I'd share it. Seems like our cancellation wasn't a total loss.

We were surprised to find the lakefront area at Mariner's Cove all torn up and under construction. Not too inspiring and for a while I didn't think I would find a scene to paint. But I finally did find this boat that had nice shadows and after a rough onsite painting (drawing boats is hard!) I finished it at home.
