Field Trip





Got lost in the country looking for an estate sale which is not hard for me because I'm directionally challenged! (blame it on the dyslexia!) So, we never found the sale (in search of ephemera, old linens.... rickety typewriters) but we did find a stellar perennial garden nursery. Here are a few scenes from our outing. It was set near a small little brook in the hills above Spokane. I love the bucolic setting. Nurseries inspire me to paint. Kathleen Elsey (a California Colorist artist) who won an award for a beautiful painting of a nursery. Visit her here.
