Tybee and I headed back to the same spot as yesterday to paint. It is a nice wide open area that gives me plenty of sky to paint. Charlotte is a "tree city". Lots and lots of trees. Don't get me wrong, I love big old oak trees and tall pines. But I miss wide open spaces. Growing up on the coast, we certainly had plenty of trees but we also had plenty of sky. Sky for days... as far as you can look in any direction. Here, you catch a glimpse of the sky through branches or you have to look straight up. It makes me claustrophobic sometimes.
I'm so excited about the winter storm headed our way! I even got up early to watch the news this morning. Fingers crossed we get enough snow to paint! I've got my snow boots ready!
