Schreber's Watershield

 Schreber's Watershield is what my PictureThis app tells me these waterlily-like but smaller and more ovoid plants are called. They make nice patterns on the water.

Hickory Ridge Barn

I started this back in May and returned to it recently. It is now at the stage I am calling "asympotschke" - when continued daubing produces ever smaller returns while never quite reaching completion.

I used my small cigar box pochade mounted on my bike to paint the view from a local abandoned golf course.
