Friday's sunset

This is what we viewed as we drove home from Houston last night --- I painted it wet-in-wet from memory later. It was a very l-o-n-g drive, bumper-to-bumper traffic as people go to high school games or escape the city for the weekend. State Highway 290 is congested even on good days due to construction.

We were at our daughter's so I could finish painting the missing pieces in one of Mikala's puzzles. Cats made them disappear; after glueing the completed puzzle together we filled the holes with paper clay, coated them with watercolor ground, then painted in the colors with gouache. Now they will coat it with Modge Podge, frame it (along with two others), and hang it on her bedroom wall.
