Down Time

12 x 16 oil on panel
I brought some brown and white paint with me to the lake last weekend and began this one right on the boat. The waves of course made it so I was having to really grab the floor with my toes to stay upright, much less get the paint mixed and where I wanted it. I used a book with a ziploc bag around it for my palette and got a Very rough sketch down which I finished at home a few days later. I've been out of town and just now had a chance to post it here.

Looks like a relaxing day. You did a great job of working with what you had.

Thank you, Doug. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it was good for me to get creative. I did have an easel but forgot my pochade box. Luckily I had a palette knife with me and the two tubes of paint.

Camille, this is fabulous! I must say that I thought your husband? had a tattoo on his leg and thought it was rather unique. Then I realized that it was your signature! LOL Anyway, this looks like it was pure relaxation!

Sherry, this is one of my personal favorite paintings of mine lately. And someone asked if that was a bag of chips and I told them, yes, because my husband is 'all that and a bag of chips'... ba dum BUM
