                   Ahhh, it was a beautiful, sunny afternoon when we visited the Parker River Refuge on the northeast coast of Massachusetts. The refuge has sandy beaches and dunes, cranberry bogs, woods, and acres and acres of salt marsh. That day there were ducks sunning themselves near the edge of the marsh banks. With their brown and beige feathers they blended in so well with their surroundings that I almost didn’t notice them at first. You may be able to see some of them since I’ve tucked a few in amongst the reeds in the painting.
            I hope your weekend sees you getting outside and enjoying a beautiful, sunny afternoon. Happy Weekend!

            April in the Atlanta area is usually beautiful with blooming trees, bushes, and flowers. It apparently also is typically one of our drier months though you’d never know it this year. It has been raining with very few exceptions virtually every day for weeks! When we get a clear, sunny day, we wander out a bit dazed, looking like pale human mushrooms seeing light for the first time.
            Fortunately, as I drive back and forth to work, I’m treated to the cheerful sight of colorful tulips, red and pink azaleas, purple irises, the wine-red and purples of the Japanese maples, the pink and white blooming dogwood trees, and the lime-green of new leaves sprouting everywhere.
            Hope you enjoy sunshine and April colors this weekend!

             During a presentation on some of my art that I gave two weeks ago, I was reminded of how much I enjoyed painting the Glen Coe area in Scotland. It’s such a strikingly beautiful mix of majestic, rocky mountains rising steeply from lush, grassy meadows. We didn’t have much time when we passed through this area but I would have loved to walk the path shown here to see where it led. I think I would have seen some small waterfalls running down the hillside, maybe some sheep, and even some wildflowers…. not a bad walk in my opinion.
            Hope wherever you are, that the snow has fled, the birds have returned, and the flowers are blooming.
            Have a happy spring weekend!
