I painted 'Summer Evening' during my trip to Cashiers NC last week. There was a light rain falling at the time, and it sure was a relief from the hot weather the previous few days. This is a very beauiful area, and right now, almost every roadside and forest area is covered with large flowering mountain laurels. Quite a sight. I've included some photos, which I hope to use as references for some studio paintings. I had a great week and was happy to sell five of my pieces painted during the week.
I sold a painting i did of this view, and didnt get a chance to photograph the painting, so I went back later and took this photo, hoping to paint it again at home. There was brighter sun and puffy clouds around when i painted it; here it's a bit overcast and not as colorful.
Thanks for checking out my blog. So long for now!
