We Did It







We did it! We braved the cold and set up our easels to paint outdoors!!
Though the temperatures were in the mid to high 40's and the winds were out of the North, the sun was out and made for a pleasant morning.
Here is Nancy at her easel. She painted a beautiful Texas landscape with bluebonnets.
Painting outside the studio is always a challenge - packing the paints and easel and all the other "stuff". And wouldn't you know it I forgot to pack my paintbrush holder!! I didn't have any brushes nor palette knives to paint with! Fortunately Nancy had brushes to spare and let me borrow her palette knife and brush! It's great having a painting buddy!
And this is me with my big aloe looking plant. : )
It was fun nonetheless.

I enjoyed painting with you Judy! I'm still picking little leaves out of my palette. I can't wait to see your finished painting, the greys and red violets are beautiful.

It would be fun to paint the painters and easels among the flowers and umbrellas, a nice setting.
