I did this today in the Alison Park area of Baxter Village.I was trying to use the "colorist" approach instead of using all greens and local colors. It's hard for me to do this without making the colors too garish- still trying!There were two lawn workers cutting grass and blowing leaves around with a loud leaf blower. The noise almost made me quit- but I stuck it out.

I worked on this painting a bit more after posting this photo. I'll try to update it tomorrow. I love Carol Marine's blog and website. I was so sad to hear that her house and studio burned in the Austin, TX fires this week. I painted this today in honor of her. She makes painting tea cups and fruit look SO easy- but it's certainly not easy at all!

It's a little crooked, but I like the light/shadow effect. Deborah, a fellow painter, invited us to her home in the NODA area of Charlotte for a day of painting. It was a lovely location! Thanks Deborah! We also had a delicious lunch at the backyard picnic table.
