It was a gorgeous summer in Rochester, too…

Clouds over Barben Farm in Honeoye Falls.
This week, I’m taking a look back at my summer, both in Maine and in Rochester. 
Catherine, Sandy and Carol at Powder Mills Park in Pittsford.
We often light on a place here in Rochester and paint there through a season, but this year we were gypsies.
Perhaps the nicest thing about this summer was the opportunity to work with so many new artists. In particular, I loved the challenge of starting to teach Amy Vail to draw.
The weather in Rochester seemed to be perfect more often than not—clear and bright, and never too hot. We would head for shelters on the threat of rain, but it usually didn’t materialize.

There are many good options at Schoen Place. This one provides some cover.

Another option at Schoen Place is looking north over one of Pittsford’s remaining working farms.
