On Friday I went plein air painting with my friends. We met at the park, chose our painting
site and proceeded to carry our equipment to the site. I then realized I did not have brushes or
a palette. My friends supplied brushes and a paper palette so I was set to paint. The brushes
were hog bristle which I have not used in years. I was painting on a smooth board so the
paint just kept coming back off the surface as I was trying to add more. I wrestled with it
for two and a half hours and out of frustration, started using my fingers and the other end of
the brush. Here is the result.
