Final touch up on En Plein Air

I'm never quite sure but I think this is all I am going to do on this one. I looked at my photos and decided to add the darker shadow in the foreground...the yellow flowers and the interesting windowpanes...touched up the stone pillar a little and got rid of most of the background orange. I call this one "On Golden Pond".

Both Ann and I were working away trying to decide where to put shadows as they changed considerably from 9:30 to noon!

Greg and I are off to dinner. It is our 20th anniversary today. We both decided to let each other do what ever was their favorite thing to do today and then come together tonight to celebrate at a really nice restaurant. It was so lovely knowing I didn't have to even give dinner a second thought tonight!

20 years. What a ride it has been.


  1. Hi Ginny,
    I love the cottage. You did a wonderful job. Happy Anniversary to you and your husband.

  2. Ginny - you are making me nostalgic for the north woods. What a treat to go plein air painting there. This is lovely.
