Over the weekend, we took the Phoenix Metro Light Rail into downtown Phoenix and visited the Japanese Friendship Garden. It was such a nice warm day, it felt like Spring. Warm enough that we didn't need jackets, but not so hot that we were sweating.
I still take photos, and then paint my favorite shots into my sketchbook. I'm working up the nerve to sketch plein aire, but I get too intimidated and self-conscious at the thought of random folks looking over my shoulder while I painted.
