The Carousel was full of energy plein air painting at Forest Park in Noblesville, Indiana. I just had so much fun just being outside painting in the fresh air. The morning couldn't have been any better.
I painted a bigger painting of this court house a couple of years ago. The bigger painting is 16" x 20", and this painting is 11" x 14". I have a friend who just fell in love with the bigger painting, but could not afford the painting, so I thought this is a great opportunity to paint the painting smaller, which would be cheaper. I changed my prospective from the original one to make the two different. What a wonderful day to paint.
The Fisherman was inspired from a photo that I took of a fisherman in Brookville, Indiana. I painted this for an art show theme "Celebrate the Colors". I had fun playing around with the reds and blues that you see most in this painting.
