Today I was determined to get back into a groove and go out in the AM to plein-air. I love my Heilman Box, and my 1/2 french easal and want to use them! I feed now 2 baby bummer calves at about 7 am, then loaded my little car with the dogs, (4)-- and headed to the camp ground at Indain Creek Resevoir. It was a sparkly sunny morning, just wonderful. I found an area where no one was, and tho I could hear and see people this fine Father's Day morning, we were alone. People in small boats on the lake, and did look interesting---but maybe next time. I decided on the far end of the beach and lake and hope I did it justice!! The violets and greens and sages and oranges were so pretty-----along with that blue sky color the lake was reflecting, with the sun sparkel!! This picture, tho, is not the correct porportions and I am not sure why!
