With all the rain and some warmer weather, my sketches are reflecting the additional color in the prairie. Flowers bloom so quickly and then are gone. When I head out, my thoughts are churning as I wonder how I can possibly capture everything that’s happening. Once I’m out there, though, there’s usually something that will cause me to focus and I stop to pay attention. Most of the time it’s a flower, but sometimes it’s an insect or frog, and I remember why I love them so. Enjoy!
