On Friday we actually completed 2 terrific paintings, the hummingbird and the ocean view, and were pleased with our accomplishments. Painters new to painting with Mark and repeat enthusiasts were smiling as we left for the day or went out for a group dinner, all in anticipation of a blustery next day. Friday evening was spent watching the hurricane progress up the east coast.
Saturday brought everyone back for more painting as we watched the rain and wind outside the windows. Appropriately we painted a rain scene, a group favorite. Then home early just in time, we hoped, to miss the worsening weather.
Then Sunday amidst sunshine most everyone was able to return to paint
again and share personal hurricane stories. Our bicycle paintings, a relatively new painting for Mark to teach, were not disappointing. And we kept Ryan, The Framer, busy framing our favorites.
And Mark says he come teach for us next year, hurricane or no hurricane. Watch for dates as our plans develop.
