Fun Painting at Jetter's Farm

 Hey Friends, Yesterday, the first day of August,  the Double Line painters worked at a local farm on Rt. 460 in SW Virginia.  Jetter's Farm raises the usual farm stuff and has a corn maze in the fall where some school children and dogs have disappeared forever.  Ha.
 Here is the talented Angela Shields working on her version of the Jetter barn.  All of these gals painted the Barn!  Is that because it's the biggest feature or did they feel safe in a group?
 Here is the talented Mary Anne Meador painting her version.  She is famous for hr cow paintings so surely she will add some bovines some where.
 Here is the talented Judy Lochbrunner.  The lefty of our group staying in the shade.
 Here is the talented Bonnie Mason scrubbing in her version.  She is slow but tenacious?
 Here is the talented Martha Lalka, who seems to be having a hard time deciding what to paint first.  She is using watercolor on a stretched WC Canvas and didn't like it at first but was getting along fine before it was all over.  I liked the look myself.
 Here is the talented Linda Schaar.  She worked in oil for this painting but also likes acrylic.  She is the one that proved to me the Masterson Stay-Wet Palette really works.
 And here is the easel of the talented Sue Furrow also trying to stay in the shade.  The tree kept moving, I mean the sun.  I bought this cheap easel at WalMart on a whim and it actually isn't half bad.  It's a Daler Rowney and worked just fine w/ a few adjustments.  I will post more photos of my progress on my blog, if you want to take a peek.
And finally a sad little shot of the separation anxiety these guys were feeling.  They seemed to want some company and didn't care if it was human or not.  Maybe the last time they saw their Mom, she was with a human - is that the association.

We, the DLPBR, will be showing and selling our plein-aire efforts at a special member show at Gallery 108 this October.  The opening reception will be Oct. 5th during Art by Night.  This is the monthly art crawl where all the galleries and business'in DownTown Roanoke will be open late.
Please put us on your calendar and come by to meet the artists and have some refreshments.

Happy Trails
