Came to the footbridge late in the afternoon to continue my plein air painting in the park. The Assiniboine River at the park gleamed in the late afternoon sunshine. It was a delightful painting experience.
while the wife was driving with me sitting on passenger seat, I sported the halfway tree halfway through the driving from Brandon to Winnipeg early in the morning, I asked her to pull over and did this quick oil sketch of the halfway tree
The sun came out of the clouds briefly in the morning. I set up my easel in a hurry to try to capture the brief moment when the morning sunlight is shining through the basswood trees across the street with its shimmering surface in the sun.
I have never in my life received so many birthday greetings as this year from my Facebook friends. It is such a busy day for me! There is a after-school meeting for support staff at school , and it was past 5 pm already when I came home. I drove straight to North Hill to deliver a painting , and after coming back to finish my supper in a hurry, we went to cast our vote for Manitoba provincial election. It was already past 7 p.m when I came home, and there was not much of sunlight left. I came to my easel on our patio and did this quick oil sketch of sunset to mark my 51st birthday.
