Johnson's Backyard Garden
This month one of our brilliant Plein Air Austin members, Kate Merriman, came up with the idea of painting local farms. She researched and connected with a number of small, organic farmers who were most happy to have us come visit. (Thank you, Kate!) Unfortunately, on the day we scheduled this farm, it rained. Not to be deterred, two of us actually stayed and painted from our cars. Mind you, I have a tailgate to seek shelter under, but my unwavering (equally crazy?) friend, Stephen Parker, literally used his steering wheel as an easel! Always an adventure!
