It has been raining pretty steadily since I came to be granny-nanny at my son and daughter-in-law’s home in Montana. But last Thursday there was a break in the rain that coincided with a pause in my granny-nanny duties. I took the opportunity to walk down the road a little ways. The ferns were glowing amber under the trees and all covered with rain drops. I took a quick picture then continued on my walk. Before I returned home I stopped to watch several deer who stood and gazed back at me. They were not afraid. I didn’t get a picture of the deer, but did take one of the beautiful ferns. I used it for reference to make this sketch.
I am pleased with how well my portable studio “table” worked. Everything is either clipped or tacked to it with putty, which made it easy to use even sitting cross legged on my bed in the loft.
