We went to Ocean Springs this past weekend for Elmore's kayak race, but I enjoyed the art most of all, along with all the friends we saw while we were there. I spent Saturday morning (cloudy and rainy) in the Walter Anderson Museum of Art. He's one of my favorite artists, and they've recently restored the murals in the community center and done a wonderful job.
Sunday was sunnier, if still chilly, so I painted while Elmore went back out on the bay. It was fun to sit in one place and do three quick watercolors in succession. Both the setting and the rapid watercolors reminded me of painting on the sandbar on the Mississippi last fall. I'm hoping to get back out in my boat and paint more water as the weather gets warmer.
