Every time I drove to Griswold to paint sunflowers at Buttonwood Farm, I passed this - road? driveway? - that curved off into the distance, and always had puddles in it. No matter what time of day I drove by, the puddles always were reflecting something interesting, and the whole scene had the most inviting look.

I set out yesterday afternoon to find something else, but saw this and stopped and set up.

I believe I met the entire family, while I painted. I don't think I've ever seen a busier driveway! There are four kids, and the three I saw all had their own cars... as did their mother, who was charming and sweet, and invited me to paint the maples in her back yard, when the color comes.

At any rate, I felt a little rusty... but I like the painting a lot, and look forward to returning, and painting again.

Here's my painting in their driveway

Your road looks like a river to me, more inviting than the flat real life below!

Well, that's pretty cool! Roads, rivers, time - all sort of one, in a way?

Hope you're well, and happy, and painting -
