hameau farm

9x9 pastel
Last week I was fortunate to spend my time working at Hameau Farm.  My friend, Susan Nicholas Gephart runs and excellent painting retreat at the farm. Being there is like being in another country. It's a quiet and serene valley between two mountains. The farm is owned and run by the lovely (and amazing cook) Gay Rodgers. It's a beautiful piece of land with views of the mountains, a stream and lots of un-mowed land. I enjoyed traveling around and finding new painting spots and later returning to the farm at night for a delicious meal and fun talks with other artists.
As soon as I get to photograph more paintings I will post them. There is one that just feels so good that I know it will become a study for a bigger piece.

Hi Loriann! Long time no comment...sorry! This one is really beautiful! I can see some maturity in your work from the last time I dropped by and it's evident that things are going well for you. Yeah!
Your friend's farm sounds like a dream place.

This is a favorite. The painting lets the viewer melt into the scenery.
