Painting for my Supper

The weather here in D.C. has been lovely. I bought myself a camera tripod and fixed my french easel to it so I could do some painting outdoors and headed for the National Mall.

I found a nice shady spot and painted this view of the Washington Monument (It's not finished in this photo.) and when people passed by I explained that I was painting for my supper. I said that I'd sell the painting before I left for the day, and whatever the painting brought would be my budget for dinner.

Not only did I meet some very pleasant people, but I ate well last night. I'm heading back this afternoon.

That's too cool...I'm sure someone got a heck of a deal buying your meal for that painting! Hope you're doing well. Catch me up when you can.
