Field trip with the group to the local scenic train ride station.
Instead of focusing on the trains,
I was attracted to the scene across the street.
Colors are fading, but the big old pine showed her vibrant greens.
I heard that when she sheds her needles (leaves),
they are from last year's batch.
So wonderful to be with the other sketchers.
Each of their sketches, very different from mine,
taught me something, & each pleased me.
Diverse comments about each work enriched my viewing.
From seeing their art work
I thought maybe we had shrunk down
& found ourselves to be figures
in a miniature toy train station.
This place is designed for us kids, young & old!
