SVPAP at the PA Garden Show of York
FLOWERS, FLOWERS, FLOWERS!
Several members are demonstrating "plein air" painting at the garden show. Well, it is not really plein air as we are painting inside the expo center, but there are beautifully landscaped gardens that make you feel as if you stepped into an April day. We also have some member paintings on display in the Art in the Garden booth.
It is not just gardens though. There are lots of booths displaying plants, floral arrangements, garden tools, and neat architectural garden treasures.
I was especially attracted to this set up at the booth for Circa Antiques....full of interesting shapes and textures. This is where I set up my easel and got busy.
The show runs through Sunday and we will have members painting there at various times, so if you have a chance check it out.
