Dillsgurg Garden Tour

I painted at the 4th Garden on the Dillsburg Garden Tour. The home I painted at was in Mechanicsburg, Martin Home. We were treated so well and a sandwich lunch was provided. Thank you Frannie! What an awesome garden!

       oil/stretched canvas

Saturday was a perfect day-beautiful weather and a beautiful paint location. A few of us painted for the Dillsburg Garden Club Tour for their ways and means event. I chose a wonderful property in Mechanicsburg . There were "paintings" everywhere I looked--huge interesting trees, pastures, farm buildings, cows, flowers  and a charming house. I liked the look of this tree, with its huge, thick trunk and its fallen branches.
