This is a plein air painting I did at Blue Bird Gap Farm.
The first known owner of the property on which Blue Bird Gap Farm now stands was Captain William Tucker. Captain Tucker bought the property in 1622. Since then it has changed hands several times through out the centuries. In 1969, the City of Hampton, Virginia acquired the property and opened Blue Gap Farm.
The 60-acre farm has around 150 domestic and wild animals; such as the typical farm animals, also it is the home to birds of prey, whitetail deer, llamas, alpacas, tortoises, peacocks, rabbits, and waterfowl.
On the property is a petting zoo, for the young and the young at heart.
Although this setting is surrounded by the interstate and the urban communities, it is a peaceful, quiet, and tranquil place. The atmosphere and environment mesmerizes you to the deep country life of days gone by.
