About three years ago I moved to my current address. Near a parkway, with lots of trees I kept looking around painting landscapes in my mind. sometimes I would come home from work and do a watercolor in my sketchbook before it got too dark. I also started to come out on the weekend and paint. It is a nice place to paint, I love trees and I would use the sketches and photos I took and finish a painting once inside. But nothing beats being outdoors and painting on location.
