Calla Road

One section of Calla Road peters out at the edge of what is now the Mill Creek Park Wildlife Sanctuary. At one time it was a fish farm and there are several ponds in the valley to the left. We have painted here often. Last week the color seemed to be along this lane. I returned a second day to paint with a friend, to find the autubon club spotting a variety of migrating birds.

Autumn Reflection

We've had an impressive two weeks of brilliant colors this year! I cannot ever paint the actual wonder of their transparent glow. However on has to try! This week the Plein air group met off of Golf drive in Mill Creek park. The weather was a little brisk, but the rippling reflections on the creek were worth our efforts.

Kidler Gardens

The Plein Air group met at Kidler Nursery in Homeworth, Ohio one Monday. The place has a wonderful display of plants; also,a beautiful gazebo for wedding ceremonies. We had a peaceful, relaxing afternoon.

Buhl Park

The city of Hermitage Pennsylvania asked artist to paint Plein Air throughout the park during an outdoor craft festival in October. The park is well kept with many trees. These trees struck me immediately! It was fun to paint on the edge of a circle of craft tents, with families and elderly and young people milling about.

Red Barn

Met my artist friend Brad to paint at the Burbick farm again last week. It was a cool overcast day, but a few areas of blue sky opened up. This is a farm along the Middleton Road in Columbiana County.

Garden Artist
