Artist at easel between the creek and the lake, capturing a pink cherry tree in oils. Sky overcast, with a few clouds below; sun barely visible; air heavy after recent shower; mild breeze from the south. A couple of small sailboats on the water; mallards scattered around the shore. Many bird calls to the north. Willow branch in the water on the western shore occupied by a standing coot, a resting mallard, and two turtles. A larger turtle suns on a log in the water.
