I 'm going to work on electric poles. The boxcar was one of those open ones they use for lumber and I couldn't figure out how to do it. I see what I did wrong and will do it better next time.
I scraped this one. Mostly I'm just real happy to have gotten out to paint.

On the way home I discovered a scene that was almost exactly what I'd been thinking of. Did a sketch, went home for a quick break and another panel (Dummy--always have extras on hand). So I got started and it started raining. Not too bad but enough that I had to get out the umbrella. Got started again and the wind began to blow--really blow. Blew my umbrella off. It was blowing toward me fortunately, because twice it blew my easel into me. I hate to be a sissy so I kept going but it was ridiculous. The brim of my hat blowing down over my face, small rocks flying around. Gritty paint. Yuck! I gave up, sadly, but hope to get back one day soon.
