"Monday in Italy"
12 x 12in oil on museum quality panel
Monday has long been tied to laundry day.
It can also be the day a workshop begins:))
In my case, it was both.
I "did the laundry" and it was the first day of the Atlanta workshop with fellow artist and friend, Leslie Saeta!
35 painters from all across the US,
Texas to Florida,
Kansas to New York,
gathered in for 5 days of painting, motivation, marketing, eating and laughter:)!
Can I just tell you-- there was an abundance of all of the above:))
Garry held his own , Dot's were connected, and PHD's abounded.
New friendships were made, and new (in) roads too;)
And I was not alone in my hanging of the laundry:)))
The first day of the workshop yielded some fine paintings!
Then came the dinners...
Smoked salmon, grilled chicken, great salads, lasagnas, blueberry cobblers and of course we nibbled on something chocolate ...we had to celebrate Valentine's Day properly;))!
Relaxing afer dinner conversations drew everyone closer together, as stories of where we had been and where we hoped to go with our art flowed.
Too much to cover in just one blog post, so stay tuned for the final episode of Atlanta 2012, complete with smiling faces of all the great artists that attended!!
P.S. Pasadena, CA Workshop/2012 with Leslie and myself has space in it for you! Read about the upcoming 5 Day Oil Painting workshop by clicking here.
