HOUSE FOR RENT pastel painting by Clare Klaum
I was invited to Cross Creek Farm on August 4-5 for their 10th Anniversary celebration as their plein air painter and also as a vendor. I had painted at their display at the York Garden Expo in the Spring and they remembered me. They were voted the peoples choice award for Best Display 6 years in a row. They have a unique barn/greenhouse and specialise in unusual container gardens and garden ornaments, antiques and many more primitive crafted items. I painted in their front garden. The weather was challenging with off and on rain, but a fun weekend. I chatted with a lot of nice people and it was a good experience. Thank you Carolyn Rupp for inviting me.
