This little painting really signals a new day on many levels. For the first time in lord knows how long, I was able to paint for most of the day. Actually around five hours on two paintings and even started a third one last night. I am excited and finally starting to paint in a completely opaque manner. These images are what I think will be a successful series from Mayfiled Park. It is a wonderful park close by and a place we love to go and see the ponds in bloom, collect peacock feathers and walk the trials to the creek that feeds into Lake Austin.
