Mirrors and a canopy!
Notes From My Residency Journal
Yay for me, I was allowed to stay for the whole weekend at Fair Oaks. We have new golf carts. It's very exciting. These are my new wheels ( at least for a day) far too fancy for a country girl like me but I could get used to this Surrey with the Fringe on Top. It has two back up mirrors, turn signals, a splash guard window, floor mats and a seat with no holes in it. It even has little baskets to hold little things. The other new cart is a 6 seater to drive visitors around. A step up in the world of transportation at Fair Oaks.
I decided to paint up in the studio this morning. I wanted to finish up my demo painting from the Oak Hammock party yesterday. I did a little 5x7 marsh painting too, using my IPad reference photo. There is nothing like painting in this studio. I love staying in the old house. I feel so happy there. All of the stresses of the real world fade away the instant I arrive.
After a great BBQ lunch, I headed down to the big pond to enjoy watching the beautiful water birds who have returned as the pond has risen. I saw egrets, Great Blue a Herons and the smaller herons, a deeper blue with the bluefish beaks, about a third smaller than the Great Blues.
The clouds built up for coming rain and it was time to saddle up Leroy and ride home after a weekend in paradise.
