Mo Ranch, Texas

We have retreated for a day to the hill country. Tomorrow we will pick up my girls from camp here. Mo ranch is a wonderful place, and I am grateful for this day. I am trying my hand at painting my favorite tree, the Live Oak. Its branches grow twice as wide as the tree is tall, and the shade a grove creates is heaven on earth. I am well pleased with this attempt.
