I had a whole lot of fun this morning, in the company of Belle, the goat. I returned to the farm where the kickoff/pig roast/pot luck party was hosted ... just to paint Belle. She' a beauty ... and apparently, a hungry one. I had to hold on to ... or more, accurately, retrieve a lot of my painting gear and accessories. Belle went after my name tag, the plastic sleeved sign that identified me as a Wayne Plein Air painter, and a trash bag. All had to be tug-a-warred out of her mouth's grasp.

Oh, and lots of other potential paintings beckoned on this farm. It was very, very, very hard to head away.
But now, paintings of Belle, and three others are waiting to be hung at the Wayne Art Center. Tomorrow holds another painting day ... maybe in Philadelphia. Saturday morning is our last day of the competition ... with the morning spent in downtown Wayne. I know what I want to paint. That's what ... one-half of the battle. Not really. But, it's a start.
