We spent some time at our favorite friends bungalow in Boulder, CO. He has a glorious backyard filled with wildflowers and lots of green foliage. I took it upon myself to set up my studio with two trash receptacles and a hollow core door for the table top. I love the easel, a tree trunk, PERFECT. I had so much fun, it felt like the jungle with squirrels and birds checking out what this lady was doing on their turf. I even had a canopy with the trees above me for the daily afternoon showers. I figure, if I'm IN nature, feeling it's healing energy, painting nature, it's got to be a super duper dose of sunshine that's a bonus gift hidden in the painting. Needless to say, "Cowabunga" sold right away so I am going to say it worked perrrrrfectly. Note to self, sunshine induced paintings zing!
