recap: CFWS Plein air at Leu Gardens

Our last plein air of the season was held at Leu Gardens and we had a great turnout of eight members. After we enjoyed the lovely art show, “The Agua Series” in the main house, we went out into the garden to find special places to paint and draw. Cathy and I painted next to the row of blue Agapanthus or Lily of the Nile.

We had a lot of fun! It was a great time to be outdoors and enjoying the friendship and artistic “play time”. Come and join us in the new season. You don’t have to have any experience! You don’t have to lug around heavy supplies, we pack light and small. You just need a sense of adventure and the creative need to play with your paints. See you out and about next season!
