Sandra Moore is first to accept our challenge and as always has produced a wonderful Water Color!

Her observations:
” Went to the stream beside my house this afternoon. Rocks are so interesting. I wonder why some are covered with moss and others have none. I really enjoyed the warmth of the sun knowing this area will soon be in full shade. I am looking forward to exploring my backyard for paintings while self isolating.”

Went to the stream today after yesterday’s rain… it was really gurgling over the mossy rocks. I love to draw but usually just do a quick line guide and start painting. Today I used the TIME I had to really look and draw and feel the landscape. Wonderful day and I hope to paint from my drawing.
