Atlanta Backyard


This is the first painting I did during the Olmsted Invitational in Atlanta. Plein air painting means artists must face unexpected surprises. I have run into one this time. Before the event, I have done my homework. I have planned where and what to paint. However, this happened.  In the morning of the first day, my wife suddenly felt severe back pain. She could not move and was not able function for her daily basics. Now the priority has changed immediately. I was at her bedside to help what she needs. To make a long story short, on the third day she felt slightly better. I had some time thinking about painting. My only option was painting plein air in the backyard of our housing. So this was what I have done.
