The dew on the grass was wet, the morning almost chilly, but Saturday, May 7 was our scheduled "Paint in the Garden" START (www.startart.com) class and we had a dozen people coming in at 10:00 am to learn or re-experience painting "Plein air" or from life outside at our studio. Right on cue, the sun peeped over the trees and scattered light across the garden flowers and roses. Students ranging from 12 to 72 gathered in the studio and we started a day that for most, was a first! They were all painting scenes, not from photographs, but from the actual subjects themselves!
