Warner Hutton House, Saratoga. Thursday, August 20, 2015

Great paintings in the "Shades of Summer" exhibit in the Saratoga Main Library (runs thru August 29th) and equally fine paintings at today's Warner Hutton House Paintsite just around the corner --- the only difference is that this is the only place you can see the Warner Hutton House paintings.    We hope you enjoy viewing them as much as we did painting them.
