Paint the cherry blossoms in Kenwood

Sounds like a nice day Sunday, and the cherry blossoms will hopefully be just coming out - at least, forsythia is already blooming. If we get there early it should be easy to park on one of the streets very near the central circle on Brookside Drive. Later it often gets crowded and may be necessary to park further away.

The middle of the traffic circle will probably be the best place to work from. It's a large sunny area. Or you could work next to the stream that runs down the middle of Brookside Drive.

    Does anyone want to return to Kenwood this Saturday if the cherry blossoms are still in bloom? I will check on them Friday if I get a chance. If there is interest, we could post a last-minute meet-up!

      Note: The circle is a very large grassy area that has cherry trees around the edge. There is plenty of room there for everyone, with views in all directions of cherry trees (hopefully blooming?), plus close by a brook runs down the center of Brookside Drive, and probably there will be forsythia and/or daffodils blooming there. Artists often locate at this circle to paint.

      If driving on River Rd. from DC headed out into MD, cross Little Falls Pkway & rr track and go through business district. At traffic light turn right on Brookside Drive and go just a few blocks to the circle. Parking should be available on all of the side streets leading to the circle, but get there early as it gets crowded later and you may have to park much further away.

    Well, this is a maybe. I have not painted in a long time, so hoping for inspiration. And I'm hoping for great weather.
