Midweek Outdoor Painters – 'MOPS'

Karen’s garden

Karen's Alley

No doubt when you enter such a beautiful alley you are entering paradise… And it is true… today we visited our great friend Karen who invited us to paint in her garden. I could easily paint there forever as everything you would dream of was there. An ‘en plein’ air painter’s paradise!

We had such a great time that even ’Mr. Weather’ got the message and the light rain stopped to allow us to enjoy the day. ‘Mr. Sun’ must have been busy as he turned just before we left home, that did not stop us enjoying our day (did mess the painting picture-taking though).

The picnic was special as Karen is well-known for her great fresh it was a nice Victoria sponge. Unfortunately by the time I came back with the camera it was all gone…
