Although January is officially the beginning of the year, September always makes me think of starting new projects. Maybe it’s a holdover from school days. September is the beginning of the year for many clubs and organizations. It makes me hope that cooler weather is on the way. I have some plein air painting trips planned for this fall, so I wanted to get my brushes wet and see if I remembered how to paint.
Today I set aside my sewing and went over to Clemson’s Sandhill Research and Education center to paint. I was inspired by these old live oaks. There aren’t many trees this large around my neighborhood. It’s wonderful to have these beautiful trees nearby.
