This was another day that thankfully failed to live up to the threat of showers. We were on the grounds of Larriland Farm, a family-owned and –operated farm that’s been offering about 75 acres of pick-your-own fruits and vegetables since 1973. I needed to stay close to the entrance and parking lot, to make sure other artists coming in knew which areas were to be avoided that day (spraying), so I settled for a quiet view of the pond and did a quick tree study. Others set up along the sides of the graveled roads leading to the different picking areas, or moved down to the cherry orchard, from where they could look back the way they’d come and paint Larriland’s Red Barn and the other buildings. Unlike at Clark’s, here we were very much in the public’s eye, and many people stopped picking long enough to observe and ask questions. Not my best painting day, but wonderful to be outside, and of course practicing painting trees is never a waste of time!
