One of my Spring time joys is to come out of my art studio and paint outside. I set up my french easel and begin to experience nature. As a look around for the best spots to paint I realize they are right in my back yard. The pine and the oak trees with the sunsets, the green fresh grass with wildflowers and the beauty of the small rolling hills and ponds are just a slight drive away. I can't wait to see what I will get to paint.
