May 31 and June 1, I attended a Sara Linda Poly workshop near Leesburg, Virginia. I decided to begin in pastels and did them on Saturday. Sunday, I did my first plein air oils - which won't be pictured here!
The residence which housed the workshop was quite scenic and large. The mahogany-floored back porch was large enough to hold close to 30 artists, their easels and supplies. Straight back from the house was a field and hill, often dotted with horses. When the rains did come, the half dozen horses stood still and silent in formation off to the right of this painting.

Several out buildings were located to the left of the back porch. It was thrilling when the rains did arrive, as the sky had been quite dramatic. I pretend this is an apple tree, as that seems to suit.
