In My Own Backyard

Today the paint-out location was my backyard. It was a beautiful day. I'm pleased with my painting. This is the view looking beyond the yard to the north. It's uncanny how much it really looks like this. It was very interesting and fun to see other painters' takes on my yard. I'm kicking myself for not taking photographs.

Life on the moon? I thought that's what it looks like. Really, I just very desperately need to clear out the porch light.

Finally here's green lynx spider with its egg sack. Life is wonderful. I have fallen a bit behind on the Christmas preparations.


  1. Love your painting. Nice soft strokes. What a beautiful view!

    Love the spider! I'm a little bit of a nut about nature in my yard. I'm always calling my grandchildren to see something wonderful. Like a butterfly. A spider with an egg sac would be awesome!

  2. Thank you very much Virginia. I like the spider myself, but after I posted it, I worried it might scare away readers.
