I’ve been visiting this particular outcrop for quite a few years, mostly in the mornings and late afternoons either going to or heading home from the studio. There were a few mornings, not too long after sunrise, when I had an opportunity to watch the local beaver responsible for designing this wetland. It’s a beautiful achievement. It wasn’t until I visited the spot nearer to 11am this past May that the light was finally perfect for painting. So I have a beaver to thank, and a particularly bad commute. Oh, and about the poet………….maybe next time. Enjoy.
