2nd Anniversary Celebration/Plein Air Day Recap
Although technically our second anniversary was May 30th, we designated yesterday for our official celebration and planned a day of activities centered around plein air painting. Some guests brought their own painting materials. Others checked out watercolor kits from our art studio and found painting spots out on the grounds.
Heather Eiden kicked off her summer yoga series, Yoga in the Garden, with a free introductory session. (You can join Heather every Sunday from 1-2:30 pm for yoga at Lynden.)
Meanwhile, Ali Lubbad and Michael Kashou of the Painted Caves were deep in the groove on the patio, using a range of string, percussion and wind instruments and loops to provide the soundtrack for the day's festivities. Their meditative, entrancing sounds were perfect for dancing, artmaking, wandering and relaxing.
Guests took a tour of the sculpture with docent Lloyd Hickson and a tour of the numerous varieties of trees on the grounds with Sharon Morrisey and Jason Housworth. There were cookies (from Amaranth Bakery) and lemonade, the weather was beautiful, and a wonderful time was had by all.
We'd like to thank everyone who helped out, participated and attended. We'll see you next year for the 3rd anniversary!
