Over the weekend I attended the Zionesville Plein Air Paintout (Zionesville, Indiana) and had a great time! I couldn't ask for better weather nor a better spot. I choose a garden, Tom Conrad's garden...hence "A Day at the Conrad". The light that played on the grass caught my eye. I was very happy with the finished painting and was lucky enough to get a critique from Jerry Points (http://www.jerrypointspaintings.com/).
These drawings were commissioned by the Boone County Historical Society in Indiana.
There will be a 100 Year Dedication for the current courthouse in Lebanon, Indiana on the 4th of July.
These are the first two of four courthouses built in the 1800's....of which there is no historical records nor photos, just a few memories of those that lived during that period. I learned a lot about my hometown and had a blast working on this project!
