deck and flowers

It’s cold right now in Michigan. In fact, little tiny snowflakes (that my Michigan-born friends tell me is called “lake effect” and my Texas used-to self calls “too early”) are falling even as I write.

So, when a friend asked me to paint a picture of her deck and flowers for her, I was delighted. What better reminder of sunny summer days?

I did a side photo of my painting, in hopes to reduce the glare. It only reduced it on the right side (that’s the actual wood deck color in the painting I did). I’ll keep working at taking photos; I should really wait until my paintings dry. The lake is one of the many around here in Lake County.
