Sunday's Brush with Nature




Yesterday, painting at Emily Oaks Nature Center, in Skokie, IL, was wonderful! The site is inspirational as you can see from these pictures:



Beautiful Wetland Pond


I got nestled into this quiet nook and stayed there all morning, working on a single pastel painting.

  2. Thank you, Stephanie, for this post! Given the apparent absence of any human disturbance, I think the photographs were taken by a flower or a bush, right?

    1. Exactly Jane. No seriously, it was taken by my husband, in his zen mode.
