On a sunny, late afternoon day, a couple from Great Barrington stopped by the Kellogg Conservation Center (KCC) after everyone but Silvia (myself) was gone. They asked if it was okay if they painted the barn.
My first response in a joking manner was, "well we just painted it two years ago, but if the bright blue really offends you then go ahead". They were delightful to talk to, and I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon. Someday soon, I hope to sit and paint too. I invited them to come back and paint again soon. Perhaps a Jug End sunset is next.
