FIELD NOTES:
This was made on a painting and camping trip on the Jackson River that I just took with my pal Meg West. What great adventure! We got stuck bumper-deep in the mud and had to be pulled out. Twice. We spent an afternoon painting right next to - and casting nervous glances at -  a nesting snapping turtle. And we saw one of the most spectacular firefly light-shows that I've seen in a long, long time.
