Showing on Sheboygan Street – Oil on Linen Panel – 8″ x 10″

In Cedarburg for their annual plein air competition. Early afternoon before I could set out to paint. Found an interesting Victorian house with some laborers at work. Thought it would make an interesting painting. Did a couple sketches, began to set up my easel and supplies, and then.. realized that the workers were finishing their job. Opportunity lost.

Everything back in the car. Scrambling for an interesting find. Wanted to get something accomplished this afternoon. Turned a corner and this hanging basket caught my eye. Set off to painting it. Challenge. I miss calculated my direction and had to fight to keep the bright sunlight off of my canvas. Had I correctly anticipated the sun, I would have been able to set up and gain advantage of shade from trees.
