Doing our things in the Smokies

We (my husband and I) spent all day Saturday sketching, painting, and HE taking pictures. We enjoyed every minute. I sketched and watercolored a picture of a Showy Orchus (they are coming up everywhere here now. The "map" is of a motor tour we love to take called "Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail" It is so picturesque and there are many historical sites, and lots of wild flowers everywhere along this one-way (very narrow, hilly) drive along the Roaring Fork Creek (River). Lots of Dogwoods are blossoming now all through the woods and it looks so lacy. The Azaleas are blooming everywhere in town.

What a fun map, a great way to remember a wonderful day. It must be great to be out in the sun after your cold winter!

Oh so many memories of the Roaring Fork Motor Trail. I love that you both work together and I love your paintings. So cool to have a sketchbook. Makes me wish I could draw and paint :)
