Is there anything more glorious than Springtime in Bucks County. The cool nights and warmer days have brought on a bounty of blossoms and lush greens. I love the observations that plein air painting affords. The subtle hues and soft tones of the trees as they begin to bud and fill out. The flurry of birds and their return to their springtime habitat as they make nests and forage on seeds and grasses.
This is a scene on Meadow Lane (appropriately named, don't you think!)... I love this little country road near my house. With only two farms on the road, there is little traffic. This day was particularly spectacular with a slight breeze in the air and the warmth of sunshine. The hawks and birds flying in and out of the meadow were my steady companion. Behind me was the melodic sounds of a babbling brook. Perfect. Spring. Bucks County!
I grew up along the Delaware River in Bucks County, PA. My earliest memories are of drawing outside with my sketchbook and it evolved into plein air painting with watercolors. I love capturing scenes that inspire me - many I find along my everyday travels in and around Bucks County.
