LIONS CLUB PARK By Cecelia Lyden
A beautiful morning in Marysville, but chilly and very breezy. The wind and the clouds presented a challenge. The colors and reflections in the water shifted every few seconds and the changes were all beautiful. I found myself trying to capture all of them. It was difficult maintaining a focus. Then at the end of my session, I discovered that I was covered in oil paint-- all over my jacket' my hands, my jeans-everything. I looked like a 5 year old who had been finger painting--What a mess! I went right home and doused rubbed everything with the best laundry aid ever--Lestoil--threw everything in the washing machine with my laundry detergent and voila -no more oil paint--Lestoil cleans everything--my neighbor told me about it 45 years ago and I have rubbed it on all kinds of stains, laundered the clothes with detergent ever since. Just call me Martha.
