Wildflowers, and sculpture, and brick-covered walks.
A day of delight and a feast for the eyes,
'Twas the beauty of Nature under sun-brightened skies.
Tucked inside "our" Garden were trails here and there
With hideaways perfect to paint "en plein aire".
We drew and we sketched and our brushes did float
Over sketchbook and moleskines-making memories of note.
Time was ours to explore, or to find the right spot-
To journal or fantasize or shoot our last shot.
What a gem of a place for our Phoenix Sketch Crawl.
Art, colleagues, and nature...yes, "We had it all!
Of Special Note:
I dedicate this post to "Jordan"
a former student of mine...now in high school...
who loves to write, paint with watercolors, and raise butterflies.
Remember always... follow your dreams!
