I've been doing lots of watercolors lately. Spring in Memphis has been at its gorgeous peak, and a number of people have kindly been taking advantage of that to have me paint their houses. It's fun to be out and about with commissions again, and I love trying to capture the dogwoods and azaleas that make the city pop right now.
One day was so gorgeous that even after a good day of painting, I couldn't resist a second trip to Overton Park to go paint my
Favorite tree, just because I wanted to.
This is one of my favorite places to sit. I also just take my banjo over some days and hangout with Mr. Darcy. I'm lucky to live only three blocks away from such a lovely park. It's nice to be able to just nip over for a little bit on a beautiful day.
