A Painting Afternoon at R Park

A boy walking by with his family summed up the afternoon, “It is such a beautiful day!” On a sunny July afternoon Rendezvous Park was well used. Families picnicking by the pond, summer camp children paddle boarding on the water and walkers using the winding pathways.

This was my first time enjoying R Park, which is conveniently located across the street from the Stilson parking lot in Wilson. I thought I would walk down to the Snake River but there was a  nice flat spot of shade just off from the ponds. I set up my easel and for hours I enjoyed watching the park goers as I painted the scene with the backdrop of the Grand Teton.
