    The sun hits a grove of trees casting long shadows in late afternoon.  A solitary duck glides along the edge of a fog-shrouded pond.
    Such scenes are the treasures I seek whether painting en plein air or taking photographs to interpret as a watercolor later in my studio.
    It's always difficult to select which scene to paint.  There are so many to find - always another around the bend.
    But sometimes, the perfect scene is only a few steps into my own backyard.
