"Red Roof" ©

Very small flying creatures attacked my painting today. I was able to flick most of their bodies off my panel this evening after the paint set up a bit. A paint out was planned for the North Campus of College Of The Canyons, nine artists came out to paint together. Not only was the safety of numbers appreciated at the end everyone shared their mornings efforts and Lorelle was kind enough to critique (offer very helpful suggestions). Several of the artists, like moths drawn to light, included the red tiled roof, all alone tucked down in a nest of trees.
