The winter is actually my favorite time to paint and be outdoors. I can't remember where I read it but some artist said that "in the winter you can see the bones of the landscape." The land looks so much different in the winter. Lately I have been painting in Bell Buckle and in the Yanahli Wildlife Management Area in Maury County. For those who haven't been to Bell Buckle and Beford County it's a painter's paradise. Rolling hills and tons of backroads. Be prepared though because they are not accustom to seeing painters and you will be asked," what'cha doin'?"
