The early cloudy morning with no rain in the forecast….
Enticed me to take my 13 year old student a little further than my front yard to continue our trees studies…
As soon as we were comfortably set up to sketch & paint ….
The weather got increasingly humid & sunny…
Kevin nearly stepped on an ants nest….
Bees flitted above his palette
And mosquitoes buzzed around for an opportunity to land..
A couple of people stopped to chat in the middle of the ‘ugly’ stage of painting …..
And we moved our easels a few times into the shade as the sun played catch with us…..
Kevin being an only child in this pandemic time..
I was happy he was experiencing the highs & challenges of painting on locations…
On the drive home:
‘Isn’t it much more interesting to be outside painting than being inside (glued to some screen) ?”
Surprisingly to me, he looked in my direction and nodded in total agreement without missing a heartbeat! 😅.
He was well~aired, sweaty, nibbled at by the time I dropped him off!
Please join me in wishing Kevin all the Best as he tries out for his school swim team tomorrow…
All the Best, Kevin! You’ve done it before!😊👏🏼👊🏼👍🏼
