Crazy for Ice Cream

Parkville Days are in full swing in the lovely park along the Missouri River, and it is a perfect day for painting!  The artwork from this week's plein air event hangs in the tent, and this scene is just a few feet away.  I love painting while visiting with onlookers (and fellow artists) - it completely takes my mind off of what I'm doing.  I switch into "auto pilot" and let the painting unfold.  In this case, a little bit of craziness is what has developed!  Looser than my usual work - and certainly a departure from my regular subject matter, this has been super fun!  The cool breezes and ice cold margaritas also added to a wonderful day in the field!  Painting number 1326 in 1326 days :)
