Butterfly Garden, plein air painting
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
Got to do the last plein air (out doors on location) paint-out with Lori McNamara until fall. It was muggy and hot and very hard to get inspired at first. But once I got going I really enjoyed it. This is at the Oxbow Eco-center in Fort Pierce. Had a little girl watch off and on, and then she got so close I wanted to give her the brush! She loved it and told me what a good job I was doing. Too cute! Added the cardinal (which I saw flying around), and the butterflies (which were not flying around) after I got home. I couldn't paint the butterfly garden and not add butterflies!
