Out painting today… I took my painting that I had started here last week and as I walked down I found the scene just as I had wanted to paint it in the dirst place, so I complitely modified it… As I walked back up after I had also done a watercolor up the road I noticed a car next to me with two kind of rough looking young men, they looked at me and my painting as if we were on fire and then they smiled at me and stuck their thumbs up. That made my day!
