Painting at Heller Homestead

This past weekend, I was thankful to have a big chunk of time to get out and paint (Happy Mother’s Day to me!  I love my husband.)  My dad was actually up for a quick visit at the time, so he took the first photo of me painting.

The first morning I went out was overcast and gray.  I chose a fairly close cropped composition, hoping to make up for the flat light of the day, but I wasn’t really happy with the feel of the painting.

Happily, I was able to go back out the next evening, and the sun peeked out enough to rework the painting with some stronger light, which I think made for a more compelling image.
