We have lived in some beautiful places, the State of Michigan, the mountains of Colorado, the Florida Keys.
But I don't think any other place has the diversity of the State of North Carolina.
The Outer Banks reminds me of the Keys, the Piedmont of Michigan, and the mountains of the foot hills of Colorado.
Our trip to Ocracoke was enjoyable, we rode our bikes, visited some of our artists and sat at Silver Lake and watched the sunset.
I came away with no ideas to paint but with a rested mind, away from the computer and the every day pressures.
