Cornfield Along Fairfield School Road

The Monday plein air painters club returned to the Old Heck Farm. I drove a mile farther to do a quick painting of this farm from a hilltop on Fairfield School road. This is looking north toward Columbiana.

Old Heck Farm

All of you who read my blog, please come to my opening Saturday August 24th 12 - 5 PM. It is at the Art Outreach Gallery in the Eastwood Mall (Niles, Ohio) along Route 422.
The Plein Air paint club met on the old Heck farm, on Crestview Road this past Monday. The day was perfect for painting. We found this glorious reflecting pond. I had some especially nice wood structures, that were made for encaustic painting. I seasoned them with linseed oil.

Corn in Tassel

The Corn rows wrap around the hillsides, a velvet like shimmer  of orange tassels. Bulls huddle in the shade at the crossroads of Lower Elkton and Crestview roads. We are very grateful to the nearby family who welcomed us to park on their property.

Oat Shocks

This is a view from an Amish schoolhouse near new Wilmington Pennsylvania. My Plein Air students chose this place to meet. This day I couldn't resist painting along with them. The family that owned these fields rode their horse & cart out to see our finished paintings. Others spoke to us as they passed along the road. I am enjoying this class so much.
