Fortunately it didn't rain. I ended up having to paint at the same spot. What to do? I thought about focusing in on some shoreline rocks but then I caught sight of this view. The only problem was the shoal and tall grass mound were on the right side. Not easily discouraged I took Carlson's advice and decided to put them where I wanted them. I kept the background and distant boats greatly simplified to keep the eye on the foreground-middleground area. I actually like this one better than the one I did yesterday, but yesterdays painting was framed and submitted for the auction which takes place at Gallery North on Sunday.
