I recently went out on assignment as an oil painting teacher for private lessons. As I was approaching the residence of my group of painters I had the idea that it would be very nice to paint outside. My first thought was to open the garage door, but on further inspection I was led to the backyard which was directly on Jewel Lake. We had the most amazing time getting sloppy with oil paint in the backyard. I dropped this painting off of the dashboard on a driving frenzy to pick-up house paint from my parent’s house. Fortunately the only damage is a little dirt in the sky.
