I was in country
Yesterday morn., I arrived at a ranch outside Sacramento, set up my watercolor plein air equipment, and spent about 5 hours having a ball... except... when the junk yard looking ranch dog ran up to me barking and attempted to lick my h2o palette (he turned out to be friendly pooch but with an odd need to eat Schminke watercolor paint) and the panicky feeling I got when I heard thundering horses hooves and prepared to die in a stampede (all this noise made by one stinkin horse frolicking in the field behind me). I even heard a pleasant trotting sound, turned around, and saw a small carriage with a fringe on top go by! This is the 21st century for god's sake!
