Nature... the source of my inspiration.
Living in this beautiful place sandwiched between the blue Pacific and the majestic Cascade Mountain range, inspiration is everywhere.
And it's never more true than in spring,
when the valley explodes with color and scent.
Now, as the tulips fade and the flowering trees are swarming with bees, there is something new every morning, every moment, every place we look.
Even the mown fields are beautiful.
There isn't time or energy to paint or snip or sketch the explosion of life right in our own back yard.
But it's so much fun to try.
