As promised, here's Susan's painting. It's a scene on the campus of the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, which she painted plein air.
This is a great place for painting trees. As I've mentioned in previous posts, we have eucalyptus, cedars, Monterey cypress - all of which are distinctly different colors and shapes. Susan picked a stand of Monterey cypress for her subject here, and I think she did a great job. This is her first painting in 3 or 4 years, because homeschooling and keeping me in line are each full-time jobs. I hope to become better at freeing her from tasks that she doesn't need to do, so that she can have more time to paint or do whatever she wants. She works way too hard.
