Tom Frey is out of commission for a while so I decided to schedule a paint out in his stead. I don’t think we have been to the Sweet Springs Nature Preserve in a long time and it is beautiful. Here are a few pics I took yesterday. Let’s meet at the entrance to the Nature Preserve
Please RSVP to me directly so I know who to expect (firstname.lastname@example.org). Remember it can be foggy and windy so come prepared.
Look forward to seeing you.
