Shaded Passage at the IMA



Oil
12"x16"

I've been painting for the past two days at the Indiana State Museum Gardens. The weather has been perfect and this spot on the walking bridge is always in shade. As soon as I saw the dappled light and various greens from shade to light, the location was a must to paint. It must have been a major field trip for children under 5, because about 100 passed by during the painting time to look and comment. I am still hearing "I like your painting" ringing in my ears. I learned to paint and smile at the same time. Life is good.
