Not a shamrock
I took this photo earlier this summer and finally decided to post it. This old pan had been left outside and filled with rain water. One morning I noticed this green, symmetrical, segmented mass floating in the water. In fact there was a bunch of them stacked like Life Savers in a pack, without the wrapper. I'm guessing they are some kind of egg mass? If anyone knows what this is, please let me know! I thought it was quite beautiful and mysterious against the pan.

My postcard photo of the lovely Silver Thread Falls
Tree roots searching for ground and water
Peter, Paul and I went for a walk at Dingmans Falls. There was a slight rain that made for a moist but beautiful, lush green walk.

Floating in the finger bowl

During Peter's workshop, I took a break and went for a walk up at Grey Towers. I found this plush, mossy area that had Alice in Wonderland like mushrooms all around. I took a lot of photos and here are two of my favorites.

Thank you to all of the students who took part in this painting workshop and made it such a special and fun week. We will be having more workshops in the Milford, PA area -- they will be posted on Peter's workshop under "Workshops". We hope you can join us.

Going in search of some of Peter's pine trees
A favorite pine tree found!
At the end of the day, Peter took everyone on a little field trip to one of his spots in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (some of my photos from the DWGNRA). On the way, we saw deer and bear, oh my! Everyone was safe and Peter talked about looking and light and shared the tree that inspired A Winter's Morning Sun, one among many paintings from this area.

Walnut oil brush cleaning station
For this workshop we were short on sinks, so we set up a brush cleaning area. A simple trick to keep your brushes clean and supple, rinse them clean with turpenoid and then swirl in walnut oil, wipe and then dip in a clean container of walnut oil, wipe and you're good to go -- no soap and water needed.
