I heard that the peach trees at Fox Field Farm are in full bloom, so I packed up my sketch pad, camera and oil pastels.
The trees were beautiful, but the sky was gray, and it was very cool outside. I endured the cold long enough to take some photos, make some sketches and start an oil pastel painting.
Eventually my hands were too cold to hold the pastels, so I packed my gear…with plans to finish the details of the painting at the studio.
Bob and Anna Dale Pyles grow the best peaches in the area. If I didn’t see the trees for myself, I would swear they import the peaches from Georgia (yes, they are that good!)
Be sure to find them at the farmer’s market during Peach season (August)
I haven’t had a chance to finish the painting…once I returned to the studio, I looked in my office and remembered that taxes are due tomorrow!!! So I spent the rest of the day filling out forms.
