Plein Air– White Water Shaker Village

Bluestem Thicket
8" x 10", Oil on Canvas Panel

Due to a meeting I was not able to get out to paint in the raking morning sunlight at the White Water Shaker Village this Thursday. Instead I painted this amazing stand of big bluestem grass. Towering over 10 feet tall, it blocks the view of the Shaker Office in the Center Family building cluster. One of three structures remaining, the Center Family cluster used to encompass 9. A total of 22 buildings from this Shaker community still stand.
