Notes From My Tree Painting Journal
 
 
I've been busily painting trees this year. I traveled to St Simons and Jekyll Islands to explore recently and found some spectacular Cedar and Live Oak trees to paint. Jekyll Island was particularly fruitful with many walking trails full of fine trees.
 
 
The Fair oaks trees have been wearing their spring prom dresses in the last few weeks. I can clearly see the transition from winter to spring and now spring to summer. it all happens in about 4 weeks, like a blur.

I'll be teaching a couple of workshops in the fall, one in Evinston, FL at Fair Oaks and the other at St Simons Island, The Fair Oaks Tree workshop is almost full. I think there are 3 spaces left. The St Simons workshop has about 10 spaces left. This summer I will work on the workshops, putting the assignments and workbooks together for my students. There is no subject I love more to teach.
