There's a lot of construction going on in our neighborhood so this was bound to happen. I finally got around to it! I wanted to paint the shapes of the backhoe and not do much with the background. This was fun as it went together like a jigsaw puzzle, painting one shape/color/value next to each other. I recently took some pics of construction workers while on the job and hope to experiment with some of those.

It was one of those mornings when I didn't know what I was going to paint and was anticipating driving around aimlessly. I didn't drive around for long as I drove into a cul-de-sac and saw this scene. The great part was the 6 year old girl who lived in the house to my left. She drew a picture of me as I was painting. That made my morning.
