|As far as I got before lunch and critique|
The WSLP is a group of 40 landscape painters and since the roster is full it takes a while to become a full member. I am a candidate and as such am welcome at all their paint outs. That is the most important thing to me so I don't mind the wait. I am number 8 on the wait list so it will be a couple of more years before I can move up. Paint Outs are on the last Sunday of each month and are always within an hours drive of Washington DC. Fletcher's is practically in my backyard so I wanted to be sure to attend this one. Good thing it is close by because I forgot my painting. Yes, you read that right. I got home and opened my wet paint carrier only to realize I had left the painting leaning against a tree after the critique. So much for talking and packing. My husband drove me back to Fletcher's and at first I thought the painting was gone because it was not against the tree. The wind had blown it over and it was face down in the leaves! I considered leaving it as a plein air collage but plucked out the leaves and grit at home. If you have been reading these posts then I think this makes painting # four that has gotten the face down in something treatment:)

Tomorrow I will post the finished "Deer Track on the Dune" as well as the progress on "6th and Constitution". The latter is in its early stages and I have actually remembered to document it. I already showed you the beginnings of "Deer Track" in the post "Revisiting December on the Outer Banks".
