There was quite a crowd at West Fairview Park yesterday. Twelve of us plein air painters, canoeists and others, just out enjoying the cooled, pleasant weather. The morning sky was overcast with clouds beginning to disperse. It cast a silvery light on the water, very pretty. There were some egrets around, but mostly scores of honking, feeding geese, which meandered "dangerously" close to me. The twelve us did a little socializing and a lot of painting-friends, great weather and a beautiful setting made for a very enjoyable paint out.
