Saturday was a beautiful day in so many ways.
It marked the first scheduled class at Milky Way Farms to teach Step by Step Paint-Along Classes on the "Flowers of Milky Way Farms." It was Buttercup day.
We started the morning with coffee and fruit tea while we got acquainted and warmed up the studio. The Studio at Milky Way Farms used to be the Billiards Room and it is down beautiful winding staircase. Although it is below ground on one side, the large window allow in the most decadent northern and eastern light.
Then we layed in basic shapes and basic colors.
And Yes! We dined at the largest dining room table in north America!
It seats 40 guests and was built in the dining room.
One of the students in the class lived at Milky Way Farms from 1969 to 1972 and she offered to take us on a special tour of the house and property. The new owners were happy to let us wander. Tomorrow I'll share with you the photos of the house tour.It was a smaller, southern Downton Abbey!
