I love county fairs. As a 4-H and FFA kid, I loved the competition and friendships that formed during county and state fairs. As you can see by some of these paintings, I am revisiting the fair scene via paintings. Telling these stories to my city friends is fun....how we used baby powder to whiten the whites on the Holsteins, baby oil for the black parts, shoe polish for the hoofs.....that's just the beginning!

Back at Schlitz this morning to paint. Found a variety of color in these tall grasses, many of them were Goldenrod going to seed. Skinny golden grasses were just shining this morning. Did about 80 percent of the painting on location, then came home to try the palette knife.

Painted this morning at Mystery Pond....much harder than I anticipated. Will go back to try it again. I learned about "marshmallow feet" today, the guide was asking the children to walk softly so they didn't startle the frogs. How CUTE is that?

These yellow flowers seem to be consuming my attention. My last post about these flowers was incorrect, they are actually a Compass Plant. The large leaves at the bottom almost always align themselves with the north or south, therefore the "compass" reference.
Another beautiful morning to paint at Schlitz Audubon....trying to take advantage of as many of these stunning fall mornings as possible.
