Windmill Creek Whimsy
What an incredible day painting at this beautiful farm. The fields of sunflowers were incredible... the blaze of color and the expanse of blooms -- their round faces all pointing towards us. It was such a whimsical feeling... you couldn't stop smiling gazing out at them! Bees buzzed about, birds soared overhead and the weather was perfect.
Nancy and Eric Olson were so kind to open up their farm to our group to paint. I am so happy to be part of this great group...and glad to be able to join members this day! A memorable day (oh, and an earthquake to top it off!)
There were so many painting venues and I brought my sketchbook along to make some quick plein air sketches in addition to a painting. I love making these sketchbook entries and it allows me to explore some options before settling on a painting set-up.
