I'm taking a break after doing a block in of a 12x10" painting here in the Beech forest. I love beech trees, and there are some really nice old ones here. What a pleasure to be among them all alone. Of course there are birds singing all around me, and insects buzzing, too. So far, not biting.
Below, pawpaw seedlins, about 4 feet tall nestled in the feet of a big old beech!
