Last Monday I had a very nice group of 10 women (whose husbands are members of the NSSGA (National Stone Sand Gravel Assoc. & here for a conference at Sun Valley Resort) visit my studio to see what a "Day in the Life of a Working Artist" was like. I did a demo painting in my garden so they could see what Plein Air painting was all about. I don't have distant views of the surrounding mountains because our conifers are 70' tall surrounding our property. So, this view of zuchinni squash is what I painted.
This spring I planted my son's Flexi Flyer red wagon with a tomato plant and the zuchinni. I pull it around the yard where ever the sun is. I built a box about 16" high inside the wagon to hold the soil. Works great. Nice reminder, too, of all the fun my son had with this wagon that his godparents gave him at age 3 (he'll be 20 next month!) For many years I used it to haul my garden tools in, too.
