Field of Lace by Julie Riker
It was so nice of Larry to invite us out to paint at his place this week, and great to see a few other SVPAP members there as well. Sharon Benner and Jeanne Hartman also came out.
I like the idea of an evening paint out - cooler temperatures and warmer sunlight. I knew the light at 6 PM would change quickly, so I just worked on this very small panel and tried to not get too detailed with Larry's field of Queen Ann's Lace. We were hoping for some orange tones in the sky as the sun started to set, but instead the sky turned almost black with a threatening storm. Fortunately I was able to finish my painting, pack up, and start home before the rain hit and I saw the dark cloud following me home in my rear view mirror.
