We have started our travels up the coast in Oregon. Driving through the Redwoods the wildflowers are profusely in bloom. Everywhere are fields of buttercups and poppies and many clumps of purple blooming Lupine. The Azaleas here in Oregon are very large trees with blooms bigger than I have every seen. I tried to capture some of the color I saw yesterday. I keep diving in with that pen and paintbrush, trying and doing my sketching.
