I had an opportunity to get out and paint yesterday. This scene is located next to Thomas Lake at Engler Park in Farmington, Missouri. I also had a chance to use my newly recycled mint tin paint box. I’m happy!
Painted this 2 x 3 inch oil painting on January 5, 2019. It was 65°F which is definitely not the norm for January in Missouri. As of today, winter has returned with a couple of snowstorms and bitter cold temps firmly in place.
This scene is located at Engler Park in Farmington, Missouri. I’ll be going back to this location to paint again when the weather gets warm.
I was able to sneak in a couple of hours of painting today after walking the dog at the park. A miniature oil painting using my repurposed Altoids tin as a paint box. There’s a trail at the back edge of the park with a bench facing an open field. A peaceful place to sit, relax, and paint!
A 2.5 x 3.5 inch oil painting of the information center at Caledonia, Missouri. I used oil pastel sticks to paint this one. I used a reference photo of mine from a few years ago to paint this miniature.
