People often have advice and stories for plein air painters... Today, I was just getting ready to paint this scene across the lake when some park maintenance guys came through. One of them came over to me and said, "you'll be fine here." I smiled to myself thinking how nice that was that he was concerned for my safety. Then he continued, "we've only ever seen small snakes where you're standing. The big ones are up on the hill behind you." No snakes today, I am happy to report.
