Aaaaaannnnnnnddddd........ back to winter! In the 30s and blowing a gale, but I went for a walk anyway. Had to, or I would have paced a hole in the carpet.
Not good sketching weather, so I popped this nifty piece of bark in my pocket and brought it on home for drawing in warmer, windless studio. Trail notes along the bottom include bird species brave enough to (ahem) go out on a limb in such weather.
So many bad bark puns available, I couldn't choose. (Insert your favorite here:_______)
