Today's painting took a group of us to the
Rose Farm, one of my favorite farms on the
Gettysburg Battlefield. There were some changes
to the property since we were there last year,
most noticable was that the shutters on the farmhouse
had been repainted from last year's lt. blue to a more
historically accurate green.
I was walking down behind the farmhouse when
I came across the pasture. There were some black angus
up under some trees (future paintings for sure!),
but the soft grasses and lighting convinced me
that this was where I wanted to set up to paint.
Of course I just pretended there were no snakes or ticks
in that long grass... :)
