Every year OSU has an Art about Agriculture show. This is a great chance to paint an Art about Agriculture painting to enter in the OSU 2008 show.
Coming from Eugene take I-5 south and exit at the Pleasant Hill/Hy 58 exit. Go through Pleas. Hill just past the High School and turn left at the blinking yellow light. This is Park Rd which will take you to Jasper.At the intersection in Jasper, turn right and go 3.9 miles. Turn left toward Fall Creek. After you?ve gone 2 miles you will be at the Fall Creek Store. Keep going straight for about 3 more miles. (Note: Little Fall Creek Road begins just past the store, be sure you keep going straight ahead at this intersection) Our driveway will be on the left just opposite our mailbox which is numbered 40645.
To get to Jasper from downtown Springfield head east on South A/Main St. to 32nd. Turn right and 32nd will curve left and become Jasper road leading to Jasper. At Jasper keep going straight for 3.9 miles to Fall Creek as in directions above.
For 105/126 go to end of Expressway, cross Main St. and take the Bob Straub pkwy to 57th. Turn righ and go to the 4 way stop. Turn right on Mt. Vernon Rd. After crossing the RR tracks turn left at the blinking red light. This puts you on Jasper road and headed toward Jasper. At Jasper keep going straight as above.
Painting possibilities: We have an older red barn. Lots of tractors, red, green, blue, gray. An old manure spreader with grape vines growing over it. Lots of farm equipment and tools around. A flock of chickens with a few roosters. A mama hen and her small chicks in the barn. 5 geese, yearling calves. Across from the entrance to our driveway is Little Fall Creek .Open hayfields/ pastures and wooded areas. Around the house are several flower beds and also a veg/flower garden.The ?farmer?s toilet? is in the laundry room at the side of our carport so you don?t have to take off your dirty shoes to go in the house. There are several outdoor spigots for water. We have a couple of picnic tables around for lunch and/or painting.If you decide to look up our address on Mapquest you?ll be close but not right on target. I fooled the program and entered 40380 LFC Rd. and got pretty close to the entrance to our driveway. It should put you about halfway between Lafon Ln and Renegade Ln on LFC Rd.
