Painted this Oak at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park today. My seven year old daughter was sitting in front of it, drawing with oil pastels on a pad in her lap. It was my intention to include her in the painting, but by the time I got around to her area, she had finished two and was getting pretty bored. So she ran around while I finished the foreground.
She went back to get her stuff and take it to the car when she saw a "big snake" and came running toward me screaming, and passed me right by. I had to yell at her to get her to stop. I looked but didn't see anything. I'm sure her high-pitched yodel-scream sent it scurrying for the nearest hole.
