Summer Oasis

 My easel was set up close to water's edge, in the shade of the trees.  This one was started in the afternoon on one of those 105 degree days.  Despite the heat, the breeze blowing over the water was cool and refreshing.  There were several us Missouri Valley Impressionist Society members on the banks, painting en plein air at the Perry Yacht Club.   It was one of those days where time stopped as I worked, and I could have painted all day.  The yachts and the waves were such a compelling subject, I painted three panels in oil from this place.  This day was my first experience painting sailboats - and I loved it!  I can't wait to paint at this event again next year.
