Saratoga Lakeside

It has been about 3 and half months since I have had the plein air kit out. It has just been too blasted hot this summer. We finally got a break and the temps is about 5 clicks below 100. Squeezed out some grease and ran down to one of the local urban lakes to find a scene and see how rusty I have gotten.

Now that the weather seems to have opened up, time to try for one a day until it gets too hot again. Plein air season is here.

Les, another nice painting.. I love the colours, and in particular they way you have painted the foliage in the tree, it really rings true.

cheers, Mike

Hey Mike, thanks for checking in. Once I got the rust off of the brushes, I had a good time with this one. I am happy it feels truthful to you.
