A Day in the Park! Brrrr......

Pin It

 Yes, it was cold and there wasn't any coffee!
Though we still had a great day out at Tower Grove Park yesterday for a painting session with Carol Jessen.
We worked on composition, painting very wet and being loose, think "air brushing"!  well..... I could go on from here with being loose but most of us are way beyond that! hmmm.... back to the painting.... we all learned, had some fun, Sue is not in the picture cause she took it! And then we went home and had coffee/tea!
Still a great day.

We spent a wonderful week in Maine the last week of September! We ate tons of lobster, every day! And the scenery is just beautiful, lightnouses, boats, autumn leaves, lobster!
This is the Pemaquid Lighthouse with a huge expanse of rock/granite spilling into the ocean!
I came home with tons of painting ideas and pictures.
