Call to Paint Whitfield House Guilford Thursday, Oct 8

Weather forecast looks lovely for this whole week.  We'll be painting at the Henry Whitfield House in Guilford on Thursday.  It's the oldest stone house in New England and has lovely grounds and angles to paint.  The museum will be open, but unlike the historic houses in Guilford where we often paint, this  museum is not maintained by the town historical societies and may not allow us to use the bathrooms without paying admission.  The museum opens at 10.  Otherwise, a quick car ride back to the town green to use the facilities at the town hall might be necessary.

We'll meet for the wrap up behind the house in the parking lot at noon.  We can choose between Cilantro's or the new Food Market, both uptown on Whtifield St, for lunch, depending on how big a group we are.
