Watercolor on Lana cold press, 5 x 7"
on hold for exhibit
People often complain about the bad soil in Nashville. I have to tell you that if you reach down into my yard and pull up a clump of earth, chances are, you'll have a handful of earthworms. Before this was an early suburb of Nashville, these few blocks were a nursery. Before that, this area of greater Flatrock was farms, before that, plantations and when the Native Americans lived here, they forbid any building on this land because of the rich soil and kept this area for planting and marketing.
This is what sold me on my little house. I walked around and saw this yard with a rabbit and a cardinal and thought, this is it.
Obviously, during October I have to paint outside. The light is lovely and the foliage is full and lush. I hope this time warp hasn't been too confusing. One more of these from the archives and then we're back to the present and beautiful moment.
See today's sketch then visit My Great Day. It's always a surprise.
