Paul Camping

Paul Camping
11x14, acrylics on canvas, year unknown

Just thought I'd post this one for fun. It's one of my older paintings (hence, the childish foliage and water!), but it's a fun painting of my husband in a rare moment of vegging in a lawn chair with a bag of potato chips by his side. One of the few paintings I've ever done en plein air. As I recall, we headed out for this particular camping weekend on Friday the 13th of May in a snow squall, and nearly froze to death before the wind finally died down and it warmed up late on Saturday afternoon, which is when I caught Paul stretched out and snoozing. Ah, memories!
