This is in my front yard. I’ve been awfully busy lately, planting my garden and schlepping paintings to galleries, so plein air painting has had to wait. I noticed this view last night – after having driven 4 hours, delivering paintings — and was too tired to paint. In fact, I’d gone to bed at 6:30 last night! Up at 4:30, of course. Refreshed, I got out there today to give it the “good old college try”. A bunny rabbit hopped right by me three times. Curious wasps buzzed around me, considering building a nest under my Hawaiian shirt. We’ve been having an unusual heat wave just lately — up in the 90’s, so my poor little daffodils won’t hold out much longer. I had to paint them! And my camera is on its last legs. Alas, Mercury is in Retrograde. Not an ideal time to buy electronics. So we’ll see how it goes…..
