My friend, Barb from the Painted Ladies, came over yesterday, and we painted. She had two very nice paintings that she had started at home, but both needed some work. I may not be a great artist, but I am a great critic. Isn't that always the way it is? She was ready to trash one of the paintings, but I really liked it. It just needed tweaking. I talked her into working on it, and she did an amazing job. Sorry, I did not take a photo of her work, but I was pretty pleased that she finished the piece.
As for my painting, I did a simple little watercolor of Dale's grandsons. You may remember my Summer Art 3 of the little girl playing softball. Well, that was one of Dale's grand-girls. He wanted me to do some more pics of his grand-babies, and he does have some cute ones. Sometimes when someone asks me to do a particular painting - like a commission - it takes me a while because it was not my idea - not my inspiration. But Dale sent some pretty good photos with good light making it much easier. It is also easier to do commission work when you don't have to paint a portrait - a face - that everyone expect you to make look just like the person. Then everyone is a critic for sure. I can paint the back of people and make them look just like the person :)
I'm headed to WF today with my GGs for a bit of back-to-school shopping. But first I have to throw on some clothes and go look for the trash can that blew out of Toby's truck when he went to work this morning. A ranch hand's job is never done.
