On Tuesday, 8/4 at 10 AM, the Buds will meet at Banner Nursery on Monroe Road in Charlotte. All artists are welcome. The owner ask that unless you are handicapped, please park in the lot next door (Cheap Joe's former location) since spaces are limited. Enjoyed it the last time we were here. Thanks to Suzanne Wilson for arranging this and for the picture.

Wonderful time today at the Duke Mansion with about a dozen artists. The staff is so friendly and receptive. If you'd like to paint at the gardens, just call them. As long as nothing is planned, you are welcome to come and paint. They love artists! Thanks to Becky, the manager, for making us feel so welcome. Thanks also to Wendy, Margaret, Kathy, Kathy, Jan, Susie, Suzanne, Helen, Dottie, Carol, Sherry, and Deborah for coming on a really humid and hot day.

The Buds enjoyed painting at the Arboretum Duck Pond despite the heat. It was so hot these ducks couldn't move. Makes for great models! 

Anyway, the Buds will be at the Duke Mansion next week 7/28 at 10 AM. Please email Debbie if you plan on attending so we can get an idea how many to expect. Afterwards, we will lunch at nearby Panera Bread. Thanks to Kaitlyn at Duke Mansion for allowing us to visit.

Plein Air Buds will be at the Arboretum Duck Pond behind Chili's (where we will eat lunch) this Tuesday 7/21 at 10 AM. Temps will be in the high 90's so bring water or maybe get some frozen yogurt at nearby TCBY. See you there! Debbie

There were 5 Buds at the Catawba River at Riverwalk today. I loved Helen's accessory on her easel pictured below. We found plenty of shady spots and thankfully no snakes.

Plein Air Buds will be at Riverwalk, aka Piedmont Medical Center Trail, tomorrow Tu 7/7 at 9:30 AM. It is located at Rock Hill, SC by the Catawba River. It has undergone many improvements since the last time we were there. Here's a link for address and other info: http://www.carolinathreadtrailmap.org/trails/trail/riverwalk-piedmo...

Temps may get into the 90's so be prepared and bring a hat and water. Bug spray would help too. Not sure yet where we will meet for lunch. Email me if you plan to be there so I can look for you at dyacenda@aol.com

Despite the heat, the Buds had around a dozen painters at Bill and Linda Gluck's Garden this morning. It was mostly made up of day lilies in all colors but blue. Linda tells me that's the one color they do not come in. So lovely and worth the effort to endure the heat. Thanks to Bill and Linda for allowing us to visit. Next week the Buds will take off. Take a break and paint indoors... with air conditioning!

The Buds will be at a Daylily Garden this Tuesday, 6/23, at 9:30 AM. I do not put private addresses on the web but if you are interested you can email me: dyacenda@aol.com. Bring water, bug spray and maybe an umbrella along with your supplies. It will get hot! Afterwards we will lunch together at Panera Bread at the Arboretum.

Despite the heat, the Buds had pretty good attendance at Col Frances Beatty Park today. There were 8 of us: Kathy Collins, Carol Pighin, Sherry Yu, Suzanne Wilson, Mary Catherine Hawes along with me and two newbies: Bridgette Pyles and Jack Whitaker. We all found shady spots and enjoyed cool water and occasional breezes while painting. And it also helped that Mario's was very close by for lunch. Who says summer is a bad time to paint outdoors? Loved it.
