Got an early start one day in September. The morning had started out clear, but clouds gradually made their way in. Actually, I had spied this scene a year or so ago and had planned to paint it, as the beautiful colors were hard to resist. However the morning I was planning to go there, a friend contacted me to say the town had mowed all of the beautiful flowers down! Argh! Nevertheless, I remembered the scene and timed things just right this year. Got a keeper out of it!

Sometimes I just can't get out to paint due to a lack of time. So this time instead of just ruminating about it, I looked over a bunch of photos I'd taking during my daily travels to find some inspiration. I did this little one based on several of those photos. You can see the unfinished edges on this one. Ordinarily, these are covered by the mat. Just something a bit different.
