Painting #18 - That Which Is

 Happy Equinox! I hope everyone is enjoying this first day of spring. We are seeing our first spring-like weather here this weekend with bright sunshine and temperatures all the way up to 65F! The windows are opened, the robins are back, and my daffodils are hesitantly poking up from the ground. But who can blame them for being just a little reluctant to come up this year?

This painting is from a view of a small waterway beside the Whalehead Club in Duck, NC. We have visited there the past two summers while vacationing at the Outer Banks. It's a wonderful park setting, away from the McBeach houses found there in the northern beaches. We enjoyed spending afternoons there sketching and photographing. And that was the inspiration for painting #18 of my 100 painting project.

Is that ocean in the distance, Ann? Gorgeous work, as always. I must say that right about now a McBeach house would simply be lovely.
