Do to threatening eater, we met at the Tenney Park Pavilion and worked with the Iron Bridge there. Next week we will try the Locks. Painting outside is always an adventure.
We took a moment to consider all the life forms around us at that location. If we knew more names of plants and trees we would have a long list indeed, but out included a number of birds, people doing a variety of things, and one muskrat.
Here are some pictures of our work on the bridge. All of our “sketches” are incomplete at this point.

While we awaited the start, the weather has gotten dramatic in Madison. A tornado hit one part of town and on the East Side we had a lot of tree damage. Fortunately it was only property damage. This is one of the things we noticed last year in this class – the River is always changing – the trees as they grow, the water flows differently, the light changes. And now there may be some tree movement along our course.
If you forgot to register, well, show up with supplies and a check at Tenney Park Pavilion at 9am!
They started with a deluge ,followed by cold and breezy conditions. Nevertheless, all the students came and with pluck and grace, met each other, took a look at Psalm 1 and went off to paint the Stone Bridge at the Sherman Avenue end of Tenney Park.
