This was the lake in Augusta, and when I first saw it I knew it was a painting!
Water is my favorite subject, and there were tall lacey trees that was just starting to bud and best of all reflections to paint!
So here I am in a beautiful setting, painting equipment at the ready! Day seven of the "Augusta, Missouri Plein Air Event," and it is raining! It has rained everyday of the Paint-Out and today for added interest we have a cold wind. So as the rain pours down, I would occasionally stop, and pour the water out of my paint box, retrieve my umbrella from the wind gusts, and paint on!
I only stopped a few times to go to the car, to put on another layer of clothes, ending up with four layers of clothes and a flattering plastic poncho. Wish I had a picture of this fashion statement! :)
