Plein air painting at the Japanese Tea Garden

The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco was beautiful and challenging for CAA plein air artists - participants included Carol Husslein, Annegret van Gemeren, Renaye Johnson, Barbara Paul, Karen Nakkerud, Anika Ward and Laurie Mansur.

The beautiful surroundings were challenging in respect to the weather, terrain and visitors. But we all persevered, as you can see! 

Member Mary Frances Crabtree decided to paint in a more comfortable space at the California Academy of Sciences, surrounded by happy children and visitors.
We all voted to visit the garden again!
