Who said that The Parklands in only for hiking, biking or canoeing? Not us, that’s for sure.
-Oh, here’s a Cardinal!
- And there’s a Sycamore tree …
- Wait, my favorite is the fishing pond!
Two amateurs, with no Picasso or Van Gogh skills, had decided to capture the beauty of Kentucky nature on a canvas. And, oh, how fun it was!
Our advice: you should try it too! Whether you feel like painting a bird, the blue sky or an emerald green forest tree – The Parklands has it all! All you have to do is find the perfect spot, set up your canvas and start sketching.
If the final result is not breathtaking, that is totally fine (we did not like ours either)! You’ll discover that the beauty is in the process.
So come on out and experience nature with a creative eye.
We know there is an inner artist hiding in you!
Earlier this year, the Plein Air Painters of Kentucky, a group of local artists who enjoy capturing the great outdoors, presented works painted throughout The Parklands in an exhibit at the Gheens Foundation Lodge. The paintings are now on exhibit at the Jane Morgan Art Gallery through July 30, 2016, and 20% of proceeds will be donated to The Parklands to support annual operations.
