Having a relaxing day by the pool has allowed me some time to finish a few sketches that had not gotten done while on location. This one, Colorful Pads, was the second painting from our trip to the Caldwell Lily Pool in Lincoln Park on June 25. I was just having fun painting various sized pads any color except green. Today I added the green water and some details on a few of the pads. It's nice to have a break to catch up a bit. I am still very busy in the studio preparing new work for my upcoming group show in September. That will open on September 14 at the CAC, more details to come.
