Deaver Park in Arlington, Texas, May 19, 2010

Deaver Park, Arlington, Texas at sundown

Today I note with sadness that today marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of Alice Hochaday Monet, Claude Monet’s 2nd wife.  She urged him to “cling to his palette.”  So, after school today, I set off with my painting comrade Chris Toplyn and we took a look at Deaver Park during the setting sun.  The winds were unforgiving, blowing everything over, and flapping our watercolor pages.  But we enjoyed the quiet and the excitement of a landscape lighting up before our eyes.
