1801 Swim Team

sold still life, acrylic, 6" x 6"
Okay, I have to ask, where did spring go? It was here when I left but when I came back from Atlanta yesterday it was in the 40°'s. I am back to fluffy sweaters and furry lined boots (okay, who are we kidding, my feet never left those boots, I wore them in Atlanta too!).

1800



sold still life, acrylic, 6" x 6." I painted this before I left the hotel this morning. It was still wet, so I wrapped it in the foil from the coffee packet - worked perfectly, the paint dried and didn't stick. This weekend went by so fast, I loved meeting and painting with everyone!  I'm home, unpacked and Brie has given me her best 'Wheaten Greetin' and then she promptly fell asleep. Check out all the excellent artists that are going to be at the Art School in Sandy Springs in the next few months, Atlanta is easy to visit if you don't live there.
