FINK'S FARM

I love this farm which is located in Wading River, LI.  Guaranteed to have the best in their vegetables fruits and beautiful flowers.  They decorate for all the seasons which is wonderful if you like those reference photos!!  My favorite season in Fink's Farm is the 4th of July with my favorite colors...red, white and blue!!!!

  12. Looks like it would be such a fun place to visit. I love markets with fresh produce and flowers just picked from the fields. When we traveled as children it seemed as though my mom had to stop at every one we passed. Your painting certainly shows the variety of veggies, etc. they offer!

  24. So nice to see your beautiful new works. Life gets so busy sometime that I do not get time to check in with other artists. So pleased your daughter’s scary health scare had a happy ending. You continue to produce such beautiful pieces! Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leave such kind feedback. Hope you have a blessed and family filled Thanksgiving!
