Camping was great.

Hi everyone.  Our camping trip was wonderful.  The weather was perfect and the lake still sparkling clear.  Our air mattress kept losing air but I like it really soft. There were no mosquitoes but just before a quick thunder shower we were attacked by biting flies. Happily they didn't stay around.

I have always found it hard to paint while on vacation.  This time I took my laptop with the photo I was working on, as well as my portable easel.  I set everything up in the dining shelter and left it there, easy to get to.  It worked.  Even though I only painted half the amount of time I would have at home...I did paint and it was wonderful being surrounded by nature while doing it.  

Like many of my blogging buddies, I will only be posting sporadically this summer but I am painting and I'll post regularly come fall.   

Here's an updated photo on my big painting:

You might have noticed the photo is blurry in the one corner ....

  5. I have to admit, Bonnie, you made me laugh as well...Sorry about the camera but at least its still a clear picture and a very nice painting so far!!! I'm glad you had a good time!
