Anyone live near Shipshewana, Indiana? I wrangled 4 days of painting from my husband for my mommy get-a-way. I have booked lodging down there, and plan to paint the entire time. Still no camera here, wait! I can take my husband's 35mm. Cool. Sorry, thinking out-loud...

It's a beautiful area of Amish farms. This should be a nice time of year with the colors of harvest just beginning. Yum, Amish cookies! Can't wait!

Anyway, bugs or no bugs, I'm doing some serious plein air painting, and it would be fun to meet-up with any of you for a day. I am willing to travel up to say 75 miles to meet in the middle somewhere for a day or afternoon of painting. pm me if anyone can come. July 28th through Aug. 1.

Lisa, I would love to go painting in Amish Country. Unfortunately, I live in California and have my vacations all booked up. I do hope you will be posting some beautiful pieces on your return.
