Last spring, the City of Fairfax held a “Paint the City” event in conjunction with the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the City of Fairfax. (Fairfax has been around longer, but fifty years ago they changed to the current name.) The weather was typical for spring: bright sun alternating with drenching rain. Since I paint with watercolor, being indoors was the best option. The view in this picture is looking down at the intersection of University Drive and North Street from inside one of the shops at the Village Plaza.
