Time for my Trip to N. Carolina

Every year I fly down for a week during my sister's Spring Break to visit with her and my Mom. Hope the weather is nice, although they say it's been in the 70's, it's cooler than usual. Wish I could have finished my painting of Betsy's garden shed, but it will be waiting for me when I get back.

Sister's Garden Shed in NCarolina

Last week I started a painting that I've been wanting to do mainly because the photograph was so wonderful with the light shining through the trees and the shadows laying across the front of the new shed. And I love the colors too; all the different greens and the pale yellow and the whites from the reflections of the sun.
