9″ x 6″ Mixed Media on Yes!
I painted these little mushrooms on Yes! Primed Cotton. I remember Yes! being more absorbent, but I have had this pad for quite a while and it was not accepting my watercolor very well. Since I was unable to get the affect I wanted, I outlined it in Sharpie and then splashed some acrylic on it. It ended up being fun to do. This is the first of three paintings I did from this same reference.
Okay, now I want to show you what it looked like on Lake Eufaula, Oklahoma on Saturday evening. The weather was perfect and I believe we had record crowds for the Memorial Day weekend. This is just one little part of the lake, but there was a Cross Canadian Ragweed concert about to start at the outdoor amphitheater next to the marina. These folks saved between $25 and $75 a head. I took this picture from our boat (as we were heading in to the dock, to put it away and go home). We just aren’t tough enough to hang with the twenty-something crowd.
