"Middlefork Reservoir" - 8x10in OIL - click to bid

Dennis and I went to the Middlefork Reservoir in Richmond, Indiana on Saturday. He fished a bit in the drizzling rain, while I painted under the shelter of a hilltop bait/concession building. It was a nicely designed building, with restrooms, and tables and chairs inside where we had lunch. What a relaxing day this was! I could look down from my sheltered painting perch and see beautiful vistas in any direction. After painting and fishing, we headed to the Richmond Art Museum around 4:00 to set up our finished paintings for the public to peruse and/or purchase. While the public enjoyed the many wonderful paintings (by Indiana Plein Air Painters), the artists and spouses enjoyed a fabulous cookout on the grounds of the museum. We met new friends: a fisherman neurosurgeon and his artist wife. How wonderful was that!

    We just love being around water, as I know you do as well.
    So, yes, it doesn't matter if it's raining or not :)
