"Myra's Pool"

Oil on Board

Back from some travels! Started by going up to Tofino on Vancouver Island on the 15th and ended by returning this evening from a completely opposite place--Sacramento! From moist, cool forests and beaches to hot, arid, smoky California valleys. I did some watercolor sketches and this painting--which was a struggle, but hey, I DID it!! And it was a good first foray into plein aire for the season--being reminded of how different the experience is from painting in my studio and to not expect too much! Also, it reminded me to just enjoy the process even if the result isn't what I'd imagined.
