Too nice not to paint

Spring is finally arriving, the birds are singing and the trees are beginning to bud.  Yesterday I invited a couple of friends over for an afternoon of painting and an evening of eating.  Both of these wonderful women have traveled here from India to further their education.  Bushra just received her doctorate in civil engineering and Udita is putting the final touches on the thesis she will present this week and prepare to receive her Master's Degree in Ecology.  We decided together to take time from the busyness of our lives and get together and paint.

This painting was started on location last spring in Mack Park in Smithfield, UT.  I'd never painted on watercolor board before and found it to be challenging yet fun.  Just as Bushra and Udita will be moving on back to India, this water is moving on.

  2. Thank you Leslie. This is Crescent Water Color Board. It was fun to work on. Handled a lot like hot press paper.
