The last farm

In the davis cemetary district, wedged between suburban starter homes,
an abandoned pony farm awaits conversion to condos. Past a treelined
periphery is a large barn, slumped outbuildings, an old schoolbus,
robust palm trees, open fields, and a graceful dip of land. Our
advanced painting class received permission to paint here twice
weekly, in exchange for the promise not to sue for injuries or use
artwork to inspire preservation of this open space.
