Yesterday I painted at home for four hours and completed the South Texas Highway painting, then painted at Susan's for two and a half hours and painted the South Texas Fields and Clouds.
All three kids remember our trip to the coast when we pulled over so I could take pictures of the clouds. Stella was only 4, Jake 6 and Lyle 7. One of the memorable moments of our trip was a big turtle in the road. We stopped the car and Joe jumped out to move it and when he picked it up of course it peed and scared him to death. We all laughed. Although she was only 4, Stella can tell you the story of slamming her thumb in the door. Ouch. Even with her smashed thumb we managed to have a great time.
I've done both these paintings before with pastels but it felt really good get gooey in the oils, stick with bright colors and not get too tight.
