What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?
"I love working in my home studio, but working in my public studio and outside (plein aire) definitely has some funny obstacles and surprises. I used to visit my parents in Hilton Head and get out early (5 AM) to paint before anyone else woke up. One time, I went out and got set up to paint and started painting for about an hour. As I was working I noticed a 12 foot gator was getting ready to cross by me to move across the road. I swiftly moved back to my car and sat inside until he had moved himself past my easel and into the woods. Since I had lived in Hilton Head most of my life at that point, it didn't frighten me, but I did have a healthy respect for his turf."
