For more information about the Maryknoll Seminary (Residence) in Los Altos, see: http://www.eldalamberon.com/maryknoll2.html This is an older article but summarizes the history quite well.
- Thursday, March 5, 2015: Wildwood Park, Saratoga
- Thursday, March 12, 2015: Sunnyvale Heritage Orchard, Sunnyvale - apricot trees in bloom.
- Thursday, March 19, 2015: Kirk-Farrington House, San Jose - hopefully the huge collection of tree peonies will be in full bloom. If you haven't seen them before, they're spectacular.
(Note: Additional finished paintings from the Winchester Mystery House paintsite have recently been posted --- check that and other past postings every so often for recent additions.)
Not every artist got his or her picture taken. Here's just a few of us ....
You've seen us. Now see what we did ....
(Unfortunately, with so many artists choosing to paint the Chapel and the Campanile, I couldn't remember who did which --- so many are uncaptioned. The ones I think (hope) I remember correctly, I captioned with the artist's name. But they're all good so enjoy them equally.)

In the afternoon I thought I should at least try to draw the building, despite my poor drawing skills. I sketched it in ink on site and added color in my studio. It came out pretty well! Leslie
"The morning fog lifted just in time for my raw sienna sky base layer to dry so I could paint in patches of blue with clouds. It was a spectacular site with so many subjects!" Dick
