Santa Clara Mission, Santa Clara Thursday, March 30, 2017

Santa Clara Mission on the campus of Santa Clara University was beautiful as always, but the brisk wind made it quite cold and difficult to paint.  Some of us toughed it out in the wind in order to get the perfect angle.  Others sought shelter from the wind, and were still able to produce striking artwork.  The date had been carefully selected to coincide with spring break, so there were no students on campus, but there were plenty of tour groups.  Link
