LOOKING UP oil on canvas, 6x4
I did this plein air palette knife painting yesterday afternoon in 100 degree heat! Can you tell how hot I was? I sat in the shade in front of my house and looked up at our flag waving in the breeze and painted as fast as I could. I started out in the shade, but finished with the sun on my legs and my palette, actually getting sunburned legs. I know--you're saying, "Why didn't you paint early in the morning before it got so hot???" I don't know... Anyway, here's the finished painting.
