Protected, 10x8 oil

Protected, 10x8 oil
'Protected' was my second painting of the day.  I couldn't help but paint this scene, with the people sitting at the bench in the shade of the tree.  It looked as though the tree was bending over to make sure they were protected from the sun.

My first painting, below, was a very quick sketch.  When I arrived at the park there was a beautiful mist covering the lake.  As I was painting, the mist was quickly disappearing.
