The show at the Terra Nova Gallery was a lot of work but, I'm so glad I did it. Many people showed up for the opening and it was fun. My photos of the paintings are still at the photographers. I'll post them when I can.
The first day we painted on Linda's farm. Our lunches were brought to us and dinners were back at the studio and were very yummy and healthy.
This is Russell Rick's painting. He had quite a few nice paintings that week and kept us entertained.
Day three took us up into the high country to paint wildflowers. As part of the retreat, we took a trail ride on horseback. This was a highlight.
I had to drive my Toyota through this river three times on the way up and down. The first crossing was rough with big rocks. One of the cars got high centered. The drive up was one of my favorite parts.
Day 4 was a great painting day. I loved painting the valley and gentle mountains. We were out in the sun painting for six hours. By this time we were use to painting out in the elements and it was not a problem, except when the wind was blowing. We just loaded things down with rocks.
