Flowers Along Douglas; Plein Air Oil on Canvas Panel 16 x 20

Traveled to the west side of Rockford. My intent was to help out a patron who purchased a painting last year and wanted me to make an adjustment to the painting. Not a problem except that the telephone number I had for the patron, did not work (turns out that I had a wrong digit written down). Tried to stop at her home, but no one was there. I decided to drive around the neighborhood in search of a scene to paint.

As I crept along, taking in the sights, I noticed a lovely floral basket hanging on a garage. The sun was creating some terrific shadows. Parked the car, set up the gear and I was painting. Spent a little over two hours on this, but it was time well spent.

After putting away my paint supplies and checking to see if the patron was home yet (she was not), I toured the rest of the neighborhood and discovered a lot of great opportunities. More to follow.
