Thursday, August 27th

On Thursday, we'll be scouting out old barns along GA Hwy 2 between Ringgold and Varnell. Then we may paint again at the Varnell House. There are so many sites that need to be captured on canvas and paper.

We'll be painting at Bethlehem Gardens near Varnell beginning around 8:30am. There are lilies, hostas, ferns, fountains and all manner of other living things. Winding pathways into a shaded wonderland will give us endless painting venues. We're excited that the owner has granted us permission to paint there.

We'll begin painting at Prater's Mill near Varnell, GA, on Tuesday morning around 8:00 or 8:30. There are lots of views to choose from. The mill and gin sit beside the creek which winds through woods and meadows.

We're painting today at "Studio Bee" on Old Three Notch Road outside of Ringgold. There are acres of meadows, an organic garden complete with scarecrow, flowers, a barn, a creek, sunflowers, birdhouses - in short, it's a great place for artists. Excuse me while I get my easel...

We'll be painting near the historic train tunnel in Tunnel Hill on Tuesday morning beginning around 7:30. It's near 215 Clisby Austin Road in case you'd like to find it by GPS or MapQuest. This photo shows the road leading into the parking lot just in front of the tunnel. It's a challenge finding a good spot to stand to capture the tunnel on canvas. But we're plein air painters...and we're not afraid of a little challenge!

Thursday, August 13th

The historic Varnell House and Varnell Springs sit on opposite sides of GA Highway 2 in Varnell, GA. We'll meet there Thursday morning around 8:30. Depending on how the morning light plays on the waters, trees and grasses, we'll see what the sites have to offer. We're sure there are paintings waiting to be painted.

Tuesday, August 11th

There has been a change of plans. We'll be painting at Studio Bee on Tuesday. Beginning around 8:15, we'll paint butterflies, weeds, wildflowers and whatever we see in the meadows nearby.

At sometime in the near future, we'll venture to Varnell Springs and the historic Varnell House, built in 1847. Let us know if you'd like to join us as we "paint Georgia".
