This long weekend would have been a wonderful weekend full of painting except for two things. One is the rain and the other is my allergies have me laid quite low. I did start a painting on Friday which I took back outside again on Saturday and worked on some more. I am not sure it was vastly improved with more work, but it is what it is. I am quite happy with this one as it is looser and more painterly. I strive for this even though I can't always manage to do it. These alliums are in my back yard and are on an 11x14 board. My plans to paint iris today have been shelved as the iris blooms are all severely water-logged. Instead, I set up a small still life.
