Plein Aire Extraordinare

 
Hello Dear Friends,  Above is the beautiful valley behind the "Homeplace" Restaurant in Catawba, Virginia along Rt. 311 if you were going North, headed to Paint Bank.

 
This is Linda, all hunkered down beside the car to avoid the wind.  She was smart, using just watercolor crayons called Inktense.  The autumn colors are very ugly this year so even inktense won't help with that.

 
And this is me, able to finally stand after bungy-ing easel to car.  The wind blew it over twice.  I still only made two starts.  Just to much wind to deal with.
Maybe you noticed only the two of us were crazy enough to even try.  Enjoyed it anyway and maybe learned  a few tidbits for next time. (like stay home!) 
 
Happy Trails
