Painting of Knox Farm

by Kathy McDonnell  2007

    Situated just outside East Aurora, NY, Knox Farm State Park boasts 633 acres of untouched natural landscape; one hundred acres of woodlands, and four hundred acres of meadows and wetlands,  Formerly known as Ess-Kay Farms, sixteen original farm buildings including barns, stables, green houses and the main house, lend an historical ambiance in which to paint.     

    Clarissa, the llama, strutted by our table followed by a flock of resident sheep. Beautiful in the noon day sun, they spoke of an almost forgotten pastoral tranquility.
