The weather couldn't have been more perfect -- low 70s, sunshine (though we so need rain!!), good company, food, and the best of plein air hosts!
I found a shady corner of the home owners who hosted our meeting space -- and was immediately drawn to the stone steps -- and what else? POTS OF GERANIUMS!!! LOL This one home was filled with vignettes of all kinds - and quite a few of us settled right there to paint! And needless to say, I have quite a number of 'sketch photos' to use when life gets too busy to be outdoors during the daylight hours.
Charles came with me as did our friend Don. Don painted one of the churches and after his painting, he and Charles entertained us with their music and singing. FABULOUS!
After the painting hours, our plein air hosts, Nancy and Harley, joined Charles and I as we visited the boutiques, shops and galleries in Hillsborough -- what wonderful finds to see so many of our plein air members with art exhibited throughout the town.
We then ate an early dinner at Saratoga Restaurant -- GLORIOUSLY DELICIOUS FOOD! to celebrate my birthday (today).
I couldn't have asked for a finer, more enjoyable day!!!!!
