This study is nearly finished...the sun just broke through for this picture...once you start painting you realize how complex a small patch of ground is
It was a beautiful day to sit and look at a mullein plant! I met so many wonderful people. I especially appreciated all the information I learned about the mullein plant! My favorite was that if you view the leaves under a microscope, each fuzzy "hair" looks like a palm tree! My imagination was really tickled by imagining all those small palm trees. Additionally it answered a question about how all the droplets of water are suspended on the leaf....they are resting on all those microscopic palm trees! Ed took this photo of me painting! Thanks Ed. Such a wonderful day. Thank you to all those at the Aldo Leopold Foundation Center especially Anna for coordinating the event.

lots of visitors ... kids, adults and beautiful insects...one dragon fly rested on my painting hand for about a 1/2 hour before flying off!
