We've had some beautiful summer days with lower humidity, sunshine and brilliant blue skies with billowing white clouds. The wet Spring rains and the warming temps have produced lush hay pastures and these red Angus cattle with their new youngsters were enjoying the good grazing. The grass was so high it was hard to make out all the young cows as they napped in the sun. Their coats glowed in the warm sunshine. I always have my plein air gear in the car and today I pulled right off to paint when I saw this scene just outside of Blooming Glenn on Route 113. This is Tussock Sedge Farm, 100% grass fed beef, and they keep 550 acres beautiful and unspoiled. I am grateful for these farms and their contribution to preservation and keeping Bucks County beautiful. Check out their website at tussocksedgefarm.com/.
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.
