For the past year, starting in January 2015, I’ve been doing a project where I would take a photo of the same area of the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center each month. This continued until late last month. I accumulated 12 photos in all. While I took pictures of the same area, each photo documented the subtle changes that the area went through each month (such as leaf size and color). I compiled all of the photos and made a short video from them. You can check it out right here.

Recently I took another watercolor workshop that was held at Makerspace 125 in Greenbelt, Maryland. Here it is.


It was based on this photo I took at Sotterley Plantation during a recent trip through Southern Maryland.
