|"Sweet and Simple–Hyde Park" 8x10 oil|
A few weeks ago my friend Joose and I met in Hyde Park to do some plein air painting together. As usual, it took a while to decide which house to paint. Joose and I liked the bright door and the simple decoration of this one, so we set up to paint from two views. She had cleverly selected a spot in the shade, but my location got progressively more sun as the morning wore on. After a few hours I was hot and sweaty, but pleased with my efforts. Joose, we'll have to do it again when it cools off a bit!
