Roadside Garden

Ever been riding along in your car on a road you've traveled a billion times, but then one day spot a scene you swear you've never seen before? This happened to me in New Portland on my way to Skowhegan one day. I just happened to glance over to the right at the right time, otherwise I might have missed it again.

I did this sketch to remind me of that beautiful garden and lovely red house sitting right there on the side of the road in plain sight. Someday I'll do it justice. For now, I just need to acknowledge that I finally saw it.
