This is my classroom.......
Here is my painting of Half Dome.
There were just a few little patches of snow left on the mountain from Mondays snow.
Later in the day Mr. B joined Marcy, Joanne & myself in a late afternoon painting Plein air & wine tasting. It's a charmed life.
While everyone else chose to paint Half Dome, I turned the other way and painted a little stone cottage with a beautiful Dogwood tree in front.
While driving back to the lodge, we saw a lot of people pulled over to the side of the road with cameras clicking away. There is only one reason for that - a critter!
Well it turned out to be a BEAR. And I thought they hibernated in the Winter???
So this is a photo from my digital camera screen from my good camera taken with my iPhone. I forgot to bring my connector for my camera to transfer photos to my iPod.
After the bear pulled off some bark on several trees looking for some tasty treats, he started heading toward the tourists. At this point the Rangers said they would have to send him back where he belongs. I thought they would use tazers or something. But no, they simply ran at the bear, waving their arms and shouting!
Thank goodness for brave Rangers!
