Every other year the Sayville Garden Club and the Bellport Garden Club each sponsor a fundraising garden tour. My plein air group, PALS participates in each by having artists painting in the gardens during the tour. The Sayville group also has music in the gardens and asks the participating artists to come and view the gardens ahead of time and while there do a few quick sketches that can be used in the tour program. I visited 3 of the 6 gardens and did these sketches. The Sayville Garden Tour will be June 16th and I will be painting in 2 of the gardens, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
