Palletteers Paint Sprat Hall
See how relaxing it is be around the Palletteers while we paint?!!
Thanks to the hospitality of our gracious hostesses, Joyce and Judy Hurd, we all had fun painting a variety of subjects at Sprat Hall Plantation which dates back to the period between 1650 to 1690. What a unique privilege we have in St. Croix to be invited to paint on this historic property. Among a cacophony of rooster crows, pea hen clucks, dog barks, and truck beeps (at Carolyn, who painted down by the road :^), while enjoying the cool breezes of our winter season, we dipped and brushed and wiped and patted and chatted (of course) managing to get current with Karol and Janet while trying to complete our plein air "masterpieces."
