A little break in all the great rain we’ve been getting was the perfect chance to get my painter’s body moving! A hike up the Novitiate Trail, though a little muddy, was just the thing – and bringing my camera made it all the more fun. Inspiration can be so fleeting and it’s good to store it up for another rainy day!
Hiking again without my real camera….here are some iPhone shots of some intense reds and greens (complementary colors) I couldn’t resist even though these shots of berry trees are pretty low res. I love the ground cover and moss growing on those raking diagonals and that up-tilted perspective – one of my favorite things in a scene I would choose to paint.
