Klondike Park

The white sands surrounding the lake at Klondike Park are so unique!  Looking forward to painting here, I didn't let the rain stop me!  With umbrella in tow, I set up close to the water, for the best vantage.  I kept the umbrella over my panel until I had covered it with oil paint, necessary to get the paint to stick.  If that surface got wet with rain first, the oils would slip right off.  I've used an umbrella twice this week - when I haven't used one for years. That blowing rain makes it a valuable tool for painting en plein air!  Painting number 3039 in 3039 days.
