I've noticed that some artists who are participating in Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 Challenge actually have a theme for the month. They are very wise and I admire them. I, for one, have no such luxury. Some days I wake up in the middle of night wondering what I am going to painting the next day! That's is why I decided to paint my favorite scene one more time.
We Washingtonians don't go out of way to pay respect to these famous memorials but for the out-of-town relatives. More than 10 years ago, before the digital age, a cousin of mine from Korea came to visit and we took her to The Mall. It was a beautiful spring day. As the sun started setting, the marble structure began to glow against the golden sky. Green leaves burned orange. It was a magical moment. So pardon me for repeating myself and please tell me that the new painting is better than the old one!
