Adams Farm Paint Out

Adams Farm Paint Out 2013 Walople MA
Adams Farm (oil, 16×12)

2nd Annual Adams Farm Paint Out took place on Saturday the 7th.
The weather was BEAUTIFUL and the turn out was strong.
The Paint Out, simply put, is a group of artists painting on-site
and, in this case, with a judged competition at the end.

being my first time at this event
(and only my second Paint-out)
i felt obliged to tackle the barn
my own of right of passage ; )
that helped me get focused in the midst of the options
-the fields, the gardens and the translucence of swiss chard-

it’s that very overwhelm of options
that keeps many painters from choosing to go on site.
i like the challenge –
even when it doesn’t turn out as i hoped
which is
often !!

but i keep trying : )

next year, i intend to arrive early
when the Norfolk Hunt Club is there!
just seeing the horses in the trailers
and the riders in their blazers & boots
made me want to follow them around
with my camera (even Degas had help!)
