I strongly believe that we humans have SO much to learn from our animal friends! After all, we're just one of a myriad of species--right?
I'm fascinated by what people "say" with their expressions and body language...
One lesson we can learn from animals is self confidence. Who says pigs aren't beautiful??
I live in Russian River wine country north of San Francisco, where artists have a plethora of scenes to paint "en plein air": the rugged California coast, giant redwood forests, fog-shrouded valleys, brightly colored kayaks lined up on beaches, rolling hills covered in livestock and vineyards.
