En Plein Air: Riley and His Frog Friend at the Fountain (Oil, 8 x 11)
I went to Forest Park's Overlook Point this morning. For a while I sat at the children's playground's, by the Frog's Fountain, hoping to see some parents who sat there relatively stable watching their children play. Unfortunately, they never stayed put for even a minute. Maybe it was because their children were too young to play by themselves. Therefore, I found Riley and her babysitter. I observed Riley for some time and drafted his image in my mind before I put it on canvas. Of course, he was always moving around, too, but his posture came back from time to time.
