Painting number two of the 30 day challenge. I'm one of those crazy morning people. I usually wake up at 4:30 AM and stare at the ceiling until five a.m. because somehow that seems like a more respectable hour to get up. I had my day planned out… yes, I had a couple of appointments, but I planned to be out painting at Allegany State Park by 11 o'clock. Things never go as planned and I was way behind. It had been dreary all morning so I just decided to start driving and look for inspiration. I found it only a quarter of a mile down the road as the sun broke through and light began rolling across the hills.
