Got out early and went up the road to Spring Lake Park here in Santa Rosa. I was all set to paint from the night before so I was able to pull up and start right away. Again I was blown away by how many wonderful Plein Air fans I met. Almost ran out of cards to give out. That has never happened anywhere else. Beautiful morning light and a great patch of scenery.

After a long day of sightseeing and getting more reference photos for when I get back to the studio I had time for one more good spot. I had been wanting to do this tree at the approach to Jack London State Park for over a year. I was glad I waited since the lighting was just right today. I loved how it was on the uphill side of trees and played up the green mossy blankets on the trunks.
