The Cleveland Trail and Lake is such a wonderful place to surround yourself with nature! With an asphalt walking trail, you can get close to the water in multiple locations, without even getting into the tall grass. A real plus for me, since today I came directly from a gallery meeting in my "good" clothes complete with heals I would not normally paint in! I picked up the boys from school first, and told them that I just needed to get a small painting done before we could go to the cookie shop! They had fun - finding an ant hill, having sword fights with long blades of grass, and picking clover blooms and putting them in my paint box! They had plenty of space to run, which is just what they needed after a day at school! I will be coming back here often to paint. I love the very natural setting of this park, more natural than manicured by far. This painting is the 1339th painting in 1339 days.
