Our outdoor painting group “Vistas & Vineyards” has started up again with our annual trip to Garland Nursery in Corvallis, Oregon. There is always so much to choose from to paint here, but I settled on some pots of flowers and a steel bike “planter.” The temperature was cool but it felt great to be outside to paint again.

Drafting is a technique that cyclists use to lessen the effects of the wind.  If one rides directly behind or behind and slightly to the side, one can save a lot of energy.  I figure that this dog is doing it instinctively.
