Spring at Lake Ontario

The other day, while painting along Lake Ontario, I had the unfortunate experience of having my whole painting, board and easel fall into the lake. I fished it out and, after watching it dry in the sun, decided the image still looked pretty good. I continued to work on it and felt that the fall in the lake actually did it some good since it had washed away some of the over-worked areas. I was pleased with the results and set it upright in the sand to go and look at my friend's painting. I turned to go back to my painting and discovered that the wind had blown it facedown into the sand! Even so, it still looked pretty good, but I decided I'd better quit while I was ahead and packed it up to go home. It turned out to be a great painting.
