I was so very happy to have a day at Fair Oaks. I've not been there as much as I like due to other responsibilities. It was as perfect as Florida ever gets. The fields were full of early summer flowers, tiny and white with yellow centers, tall, like a blanket over the field. So lovely! The first thing I noticed was a row of Sunflowers in front of the old shed and they drew me in like magnets. I spent the morning painting the scene.
Lunch was from Blue Highway and delicious. I love their chicken and BBQ pizza and the marvelous salad. Our friend Sue Wood contributed a peach pie, so it was really a great lunch.
My students arrived and I got them all settled in their favorite spots. I spent the afternoon driving back and forth in the trusty golf cart, checking on their progress. At 5:30 we gathered in the pavilion to look at the paintings and talk painting. It was a swell day in paradise.
