Katherine Cook's Selah Ranch in Eustis, FloridaSPECIAL EVENT
Plein Air Painting at Katherine Cook's Selah Ranch in Eustis, Florida.
May 18 & 19, 2022
Selah was built in 2005 and was called Sunset Acres. The Cooks bought it in 2012. and renamed it Selah. Cook has had a Lusitano horse breeding business which she has now downsized so she can paint more. Cook's daughter and her family live at Selah in a different house. ( 5 grandkids) and raise chicken eggs. There are a wide variety of projects going including fruit trees, vegetables, and flowers. They have a barn, and grow their hay. There are barn kitties, and they may have some puppies by spring. The property is on a small lake with dock and beach and also a private pond.
The house has a wrap around porch which adds to the wide variety of vignettes around the property to delight the eye. There is also a swampy area which is like the old Florida scenery complete with Spanish moss in the oaks.
Plan to arrive on May 18 to explore the farm in the afternoon prior to checking into the hotel. We will paint on the 19th beginning at 9:30. Lunch and dinner will be served at the farm. We even have the potential to capture a beautiful sunset that day. Check out of hotel on Friday, the 20th and head back home.
We will be staying at the historic Lakeside Inn. Built in 1883, Lakeside Inn is the oldest continuously operating hotel in the State of Florida. Should be fun!
