Ballard Park, 8x10

Finally got to do some plein air painting with my peeps. I repeated my mantra, keep it simple, keep it simple, and then some people pulled this little red boat on shore. So I went from just the palms, to the boat, to the background boats...and this is the result. Not so simple, but I like it.

Here's why I like living here: a manatee came within two feet of shore and began munching on the slimy green stuff growing underwater. It looked a lot like our pool sweep in action. He was so unconcerned about us that I was able to get this lovely closeup. See the smile?
