|Millie resting in the back yard. I may yet mow some more if the weather holds.|
|Look who came to visit this morning! This was taken out my back door window.|
|Mama was a little nervous, but they stayed around for quite a while. I would freeze in place each time she looked up. She never caught on, heh, heh, heh...|
|I'm thinking this is her yearling buck child. He has little velvet antlers. Awwww...|
So, I did my first plein air painting session! Here's what I packed to take along.
|I made a little "clipboard" using a small piece of wood and a rubber band. I'm working in one of the little accordion journals and it's hard to hold onto while working! This worked pretty well.|
|The old vintage Pelikan paint box.|
|An instant lemonade container for water. The lid is deep enough to use for a separate container for brush cleaning. The cap is one my mom gave me years ago. It's from The Center in Brazosport, Texas, where she took some art classes. It's special.|
|Everything, including my cell phone fit into the fanny pack...just barely! I had to carry the water container.|
|See the pile of dead trees on the right? I was sitting under a tree just to the left of it. I could see my dad's old cabin in the woods from there. I found a old round piece of firewood to sit on.|
I'm off to explore other possibilities on my day off! Y'all have fun!
