Last Sunday I returned from a driving trip to the American South. I started In Lexington, Kentucky, next visited Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia, then on to Charleston, South Carolina and finished in Asheville, North Carolina. It was an interesting and educational look at history, culture, natural environments and my personality. I was able to maintain a relaxed, adaptable approach to my trip (not really my type A norm). I loved the experience and was contented and able to enjoy what could have been a very stressful two weeks.

I have a new sketch for you. I did this sketch at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The Gardens are remarkable and they have a large woodlands area that I would like to explore further. One focal point is a sculpture made from living plants called the Earth Goddess. It is a huge bust of a beautiful woman with her hand extended and water flowing from it. In April the plants are tan, beige, light green but I understand that the Earth Goddess is very colorful later in the year. I loved it. I did a quick sketch and then touch-up later in my room. The foliage was very complex and challenging in this garden. Again I worked with watercolor pencil and later watercolor crayon on a small watercolor sketchbook. I hope you enjoy.
