This is another painting at Irvine Park.  I have an annual pass and it is near my home so it's always very tempting.  This is the small waterfall with the bridge that crosses it.  It was a very peaceful afternoon with a few ducks out enjoying the quiet.  I decided to include one duck, although he is not very obvious, just for fun.  I didn't make him stand out as I didn't want him to be the focal point.

This is my artist's interpretation of the boathouse at Irvine Park.  You can rent a paddle boat and paddle around the lake with the ducks.  I remember doing this long ago.  Yesterday I was painting with some friends from the Southern Calif. Plein Air Painters group.  We couldn't have had a more perfect day.  It was great to get out in nature again.

I took pictures of these sunflowers in my garden a couple of years ago.  I combined the two and liked the idea of one hiding behind the other.  The big guy in the front is the "protector".  I think I'll try for another "crop" this summer since they are really fun to grow.

A view from the walkway at Heisler Park in Laguna Beach.  It was early morning with a slight overcast or marine layer.  In most places at the park there are lots of palm trees so this one isolated palm caught my eye.

These poppies are the first to bloom this year.  I spotted them way up in the "back 40" when I was scouting for something to paint.  They are such bright, happy flowers and stand up very straight on their stems so can be spotted from afar.  Soon there will be many of them--can't wait!

My imagination is running rampant!!  Teddy is asking someone to come paint with him.  I feel the same way sometimes.  It's just fun painting the chunky little black and white body of the panda.  I recently checked out the panda website on Fine Art America and at least I found out that I wasn't the only one dreaming up activities for the panda.  It's nice to know I'm not alone.  I haven't completely slipped over the edge.....yet.

My favorite little teddy bear.  I painted him once before in "Wanna Color" and was asked to join a "panda website" on Fine Art America.  So, decided to do him again and I have another version coming tomorrow.  I like him!  He seems such a happy little fellow and why shouldn't he be--he gets to do everything he wants!
