As you may know from reading this blog, I’m a big advocate of painting in your own backyard, i.e. in your own home territory. This is because to me, the familiar, the ordinary hold a great potential for both beauty and meaning. You simply don’t need to wander too far afield to find the marvelous; it’s waiting for you just around the corner. With that said, today’s painting is not in my backyard… it’s in my friends’ backyard up in
And my friends own a little piece of it! Lucky friends! Lucky us,we got to visit... and it was somebody's backyard!
