Plein Air Workshop: May 2011

For 2 days in May I got to paint in an outdoor workshop with Christophora Robeers. She is a well known artist in Richmond. (Thanks to my husband,
Rob for the awesome birthday present!)


Day 1: We went to a beautiful home in Beaverdam, Virginia.

I decided to paint an old barn.

My turn... Christophora wasn't too tough on me.


Day 2: Rassawek Vineyard in Goochland, Virginia.




There was a wine festival going on while we were there. A couple of my classmates and I walked around taking some photos.



Christophora's demo.




Not a bad spot to spend the afternoon!



The clouds put on a show!

We recently had to say goodbye to our wonderful buddy, Guinness. He lost his 5 month battle with cancer in May. He is greatly missed!
