Aldo Leopold Foundation Center Studies

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.
