Locust Cove

We met at a party in Maryland on a large creek close to the Chesapeake. My son came along to fish and our host provided us with bushels of blue crabs.

I brought my pastels and went early to the event to paint before dinner. Working alone in the midsts of socializing suited me, although I did have to take breaks to thread worms on hooks! Each cast, sprayed us all with water. Pastels are picky, but they recover.

Although it wasn't finished on site, it didn't take much to finish it in my studio. It serves to show one reason I like to paint: as reminders of pleasant days.
