Swamp Benchmarks


The weather has been wonderful, almost nonexistent, so trekked to an appealing spot behind my neighborhood to give some new watercolors a test run. Alligators were present, but the best action was a rambunctious black dog.



On the way to the spot, I met eyes with the black dog, then suddenly he jumped in a pond and swam away. Above is a picture where we swapped attention on my way home. Rabies could be the culprit of his behavior or ADHD, whatever the case, his energy was exhilarating.

Scott, I really like the watercolor and the signature. The log looks very "real" and has nice shading. But I especially like the picture of you doing the watercolor.

Love, Mom

I love the top part of the log - and the right side.
