Sweetgum

Easter Sunday found us outside doing the things we enjoy most.

Yes, golf was involved... but not for me :)  A Sweetgum tree that was close to the putting green offered a branch at eye level.  I've been wanting to capture their spring flowers for many years.  It was great to see a seed pod still attached.

This is my first entry in a Stillman & Birn Zeta Series journal.  The paper is a dream.  The Micron pen glided over it's smooth surface and the watercolors behaved much like they do on hot press paper.  The sheets are 180#! Altogether yummy in my opinion.
