Plein Air Painting in Botetourt at the Pleasant Grove Farm

 
Hello Friends,  Two of the DLP members were plein air painting today in Botetourt.  Mrs. Whitney Feldmann and her husband opened their beautiful property for us to paint.
Above Mrs. Feldmann was kind enough to hang laundry on her lines just for me to take photos !
She is so thoughtful (she had all sorts of cold drinks and delicious fruit salad & more).

 
Here is a shot of the entrance with 2 ladies painting a view of the 1830's house.  And the house was outstanding.

 
Here is a shot of a field w/ a barn directly across from the house.  This was a small portion of their cows.  They also have horses but they were not close enough to photograph.
 
 
This is Linda painting the barn and field pictured above.  Doesn't that look inviting?  Nice and shady with a pleasant breeze.

 
And here is Sue.  You can't see it in the photo but the little driveway goes on back into the woods and there are iris on the right and peonies on the left.  I'm thinking now this will be my favorite.
 
We will donate a painting to be auctioned in Sept. by the www.blueridgelandconservancy.org .  Just check their website for details.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Trails
