september fields one

That means there'll be a number two! 

In September I was asked to lead a nature journaling class for Nature Conservancy Canada after they had a day of pulling down old fences on a new property they had acquired. I'd need the GPS coordinates to find the place again. It was a gorgeous drive and on the way back, I spied a little pullout that wasn't surrounded by trees, right in front of a freshly hayed field. What luck! I've been wanting to paint a picture of striped fields for ages, but I always seemed to miss the shots I wanted. Either there was no place to safely pull over, or I didn't have a camera with me or something else inconvenient in the moment. But this day I had my phone and my Instax and I got the shots I wanted. Finally!

I haven't decided yet how big number two will be.
