State Parks are Nice Places to Paint

I live pretty close to three state parks. They are all very different and offer a lot of variety. State parks are usually an excellent place to paint. This morning I stopped at Maumee State Forest, a wooded area with trails not too far from my home.

When I arrived I was the only one there but while I painted a school us arrived with a high school biology class. The peaceful atmosphere was gone 'like a freight train', in the words of Carrie Underwood.

I still finished the piece and enjoyed the day. It was a seasonal 70 degrees and the woodpeckers were hammering away and I was standing near a lot of deer poo but it was just nice to be out painting.
