I painted along side the highway today. The last time this was attempted I found it difficult to concentrate when great big huge eight wheelers few by, but today I simply blocked out the noise and was taken in by the scene. I like the contrast between the green of the vines and the dry surrounding desert landscape. Also, somehow vines seem poetic.
Then, a car stopped and I had a nice visit about art, nature, music, travel, and life in general. Making friends with like minded artistic people is always a treat and added to a very pleasant morning.
