Weekend Paintsites Ardenwood Historic Farm--Fremont, CA October 15, 2016

We had a great weekend paintsite October 15th. Alison, Iva, Srivani, and I painted all morning and then had lunch together. We all are experienced outdoor artists and painted at least 3 paintings apiece. There are so many painting opportunities at Ardenwood. Alison greeted Jamie who she said was a weekend painter and we expected her to join us, but we did not see her again. (Plein-air painters often find a perfect location and focus only on painting.) The paintsite featured lots of happy children selecting pumpkins in the pumpkin patch and helping to make apple cider. The park staff provided samples of the apple cider, and it was delicious. Marilyn (paraphrased by blogger DZ)
