Baur Farm Paintout

I joined the Madison Art Society Wednesday plein air painters recently. The group paints in locations all around Madison, including the farms and rural areas of CT. Two weeks ago, the destination was Baur Farm, a beautiful old farm that is preserved for everyone to visit. There are interesting old barns and an old farm house, ponds, a covered bridge, and public garden spaces. It threatened to rain, but I went anyway and was the only one to risk it.

It didn't rain, and the light was steady and perfect. The leaf colors are beginning to change and you can see it in the background trees. A while after I started, the organizer of the group came by to see if anyone showed up. We talked for a good while and then I went on to paint in this beautiful quiet setting.

Painting: Covered Bridge, Bauer Farm, 9" x 12" Oil on Canvas over Panel.

Un lieu qui me semble merveilleux pour peindre... Des verts qui déclinent et se nuancent admirablement.
Une très jolie peinture.
gros bisous
