While walking today on the Yalobusha River I was transfixed with the richness and ripeness of everything. There were berries and fruits of all kinds hanging from branches, vines and bushes. I collected some elderberries and pokeberries, sat on a small sandbar and made some sketches. Though it's getting close to September I was so glad to hear a yellow billed cuckoo still in the forest.
On the walk home I passed so much color and texture that made me want to go play in the studio. I soaked up all I could...and took a few pictures as well.
