I spent two glorious days paintings outdoors in the  Last Mountain lake National Wildlife area, home to the oldest bird sanctuary in North America.   This spot is on the Wetland Trail.  Three-Flowered Avens and Golden Bean were blooming along the trail and to the right were several shore birds and water birds.  My senses went on high alert to the changing sights, sounds and smells around me as I worked making the painting experience exciting but also very challenging.
