Along the C & O Canal

This is a start to a painting that I may never finish. Or I may get my courage up to go back to Georgetown and face the parking meters again. I used the pay by cell service, got a text confirming my parking was authorized... and got a ticket anyway. Although I know there's a whole procedure to protest the ticket and it will be resolved, the experience rattled me. Last time I painted mad, I ended up with a better painting than I expected... not so today, not yet.

I need to get the lights and darks under control -- some areas of the painting have the right depth, others are too flat and there are some colors and spaces that aren't occupying the intended space. Stay tuned.
