Glade Creek IV
The search for Spring on the Parkway this weekend was wonderful. Saturday was a bit cold and windy but Sunday made up for the discomfort. There were very few buds and blossoms but a lot of clearing was done over the winter so the views from the overlooks were fabulous. I got some great photographs from which to work; the new walkway around the swamp at the Peaks lends itself to great views of Sharp Top and new views of the little island in the middle of the lake! Even though I have painted Glade Creek before, this view of the creek adds the yellow forsythia just starting to bloom.
