cumberland 6, the field


This is another Cumberland painting. This time I was at one of my favorite fields. Kelly came by and took these photos of me and my kooky (tick protection) violet boots. heehee
I was asked by Ann to explain the boots. On the East coast our grasses are loaded with ticks that carry lyme disease. So far my boot approach has worked. When in grasses I wear the violet rubber boots covered with tick spray. When I was at the Mountain Maryland plein air event many artists were comparing the numbers of times they have been infected with lyme disease. (not a fun thing) I heard one person had it 5 times. Violet boots ride on!

What a great idea! I am headed to Easton to paint in July and fret about ticks, especially those with Lymes Disease. I think I'll pack me a pair and get some of that spray too! Thanks Loriann.

Hi Brenda!
Yes Easton has lots of ticks. So far the strategy has worked....maybe Iam just lucky. Congratulations on the Easton acceptance!

I'm curious about the black tape holding your painting. Why black and what kind of tape is it?

Hi Cate,

It's artists tape. Black so it doesn't influence the color.
