Strategic Position

We're camping at Gulf State Park in Alabama and our campsite is by the dumpsters. My first thought was, "This is awful, we've got to move." But the site is actually big with shade trees and otherwise lovely so I thought, if I can paint this and make a good painting out of an unlikely subject, then I will be pleased. Plein air on Arches oil paper with palette knife.
Here it is: beach chair with its' back to the dumpsters!
They aren't really THAT close!
Happy Birthday to me and a reminder not to take life too seriously!


  1. Love the work and also how interesting are you to be spending your HAPPY BIRTHDAY in Alabama. You are an interesting One XO... CELEBRATE

  2. Love how you turned dumpsters into color blocks!
