One thing I’ve discovered about living in Michigan that is VERY different from Texas is the ferns. They are everywhere, especially when you live in a state forest like I do.
They grow like weeds here, but are pretty. I think that the ferns and moss (my lawn in the front is actually partially moss) are beautiful beyond belief. So, I decided to paint some of the ferns. I wanted to contrast the lush greens against the shadows of the forest.
One other note: the mosquitoes have been vicious this week, they like to hide under the ferns, so out comes the spray again. I WILL continue to paint and take photos in spite of them!
