Board and Batten
Feeling a bit light-headed this afternoon, I let Jim finish the shopping inside our local farm stand-style grocery store, while I waited in the car. The exterior wall was so pleasurable to look at, I just had to sketch it. I loved the way the small potted shrubs were arranged in a random order that were for sale, with the board and batten wall having been moistened so many times when the plants were sprayed, that the wood had silvered prematurely. The green of the infant trees was so welcome on these cold, gray days of winter, I drank them in with my eyes!
