Last week the weather was spectacular.  A perfect day for painting outdoors.  My friends, Bonnie, Peg and I took a short class on Plein Air in the lovely small town of Melrose.  The teacher chose kind of a strange spot to paint next to the Senior Community Center's alleyway.  I managed to find a decent view to paint by looking behind the building.  The big oak above and the azaleas next to it with the road made a nice painting.  We had fun.  After the class we tried to visit the three galleries in Melrose but most had little art to see because they were getting ready for the huge paint out this week that is held in the that area, Melrose Open Air Arts.  I hope to participate in that venue next year if I am not working at the PO.

Melrose also has very picturesque lakes which is a great draw for many artists and boaters. I once painted a small painting of the lake and sold it.  It is a great art town since it pretty much only has the 3 galleries and a great restaurant called the Blue Water Bay.  We finished our day with some delicious shrimp there!
