"Cumberland KnobTrail"

Day trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway this past Wednesday.  Had a lovely picnic at Cumberland Knob.  Walked down a trail and sketched this scene.

"Our Garden on May 24, 2016"

I sketched this late in the day on Sunday and then painted it yesterday on site at the same hours as the day before.  This view is looking toward the east.  Right now the "rose campion" (the tall deep pink) is blooming along with the orange "butterfly weed", white "yarrow",  and short pink "ice plant".

 Most evenings I sit on our patio and sketch and also enjoy watching the birds at our feeders and baths-so peaceful and relaxing.

"Fort Fisher Partners"

Just returned from a short trip to the NC coast.  Only did this one sketchbook entry.  Again and again I return to Fort Fisher where there are many windswept, seaside Live Oak trees in thick groves.
