Last fall, I went with my granddaughter, Charis, to the new playground and the county park.  Fortunately, I took my camera and, as she moved in quick succession from one piece of equipment to another, I was able to capture this shot.  She is in a tube with a clear, hemi-spherical shape closing off the end.  It was an interesting change from my usual landscapes and a challenge painting the reflections and distortions.  So you see, Sharon, I have been busy painting, just not diligent posting to this wonderful site.  I found that it is all too easy to get into a rut painting the same genre from week to week.  This painting went together in 10 hours and was great fun.

I do envy Sharon and OP's use of watercolor with the quick results and "accidents" that can so beautifully occur.  Maybe I will try that medium someday.
