Plein Aire at the Former HUFFMAN Farm at 311

Hello Friends,  It was a beautiful day to be outside among all the wonders Nature has to offer.
This place is a historical marker but when you leave the cement walks, you find yourself in a beautiful environment.  Almost like civilization wasn't there.
The statue is a Mr. Jones (can't remember first name).

And this is some of the cement recently installed so travelers could get over Mason's Creek to stretch their legs and water the dogs.

I'm on the higher side of the creek and that is Bonnie making her way back after photographing the big, beautiful boulders.

This is one of my paintings, still on the upper side.  This little run off feeds into Mason Creek.  If you walk further up this little fire road, you would think you were at the Peaks of Otter.  Giant cliffs, boulders and Mountain Laurel....Beautiful.

This is Judy and Bonnie.  Judy was painting some of the smooth, water worn rocks, as you might be able to see below.  And Bonnie was in the shade painting Judy !  Bonnie said it was so dark under the bridge she had to do double takes on her paints.

We all enjoyed this gorgeous day, except for 2 members, who had family duties to take care of.
We made a few final decisions about our workshop, this Saturday, the 24th, at the Evergreen Lavender Farm in Appomattox.  We believe the class is almost full but if you would like to join in,  please click HERE for Bonnie Swanson at the Lavender Farm to register.

This is a FUN class and you will go home with your own creation of the farm, not a paint by number class like so many of the "Sip&Paint" offerings.

Hope to see you there.

Happy Trails
