Since returning from a painting retreat in Bath County, VA, I've concentrated on a series of outdoor studies at nearby Riverstone Organic Farm in Floyd. Riverstone was born out of an older Floyd County farm, the idea of Jackie and Woody Crenshaw. The farm is a melange of critters, flowers, and fresh produce...with open meadows, wide plains, steep hillsides, barns, and Little River winding its way through all..... I've set up many places, capturing the farm as it has come alive this Spring and Summer. It is a delightful place to paint, protected, with very little cell reception....so disconnecting is easy.
