My father adored trees and forests. I wonder if I get part of my love of walking in the woods from being exposed to all of his paintings of trees while I was growing up. This is another poor shot of a painting that I took last year in a hurry. It hung in my parents' bedroom.
My father is the one who taught me that grass is more than just green. I love to use that concept in teaching my students, even if they are under the age of 6.
