What a great weekend. The Dalles Art Center was filled with flowers and food. Talented students and hard work produced some beautiful outcomes. The class “Eat, Drink and Paint” was a huge success. We had a small but mighty group. In fact we all got so deep into painting, eating and drinking we hardly took any breaks at all!
Nancy, Mary and Joyce brought the most beautiful selection of flowers I’ve ever seen and some of the tastiest food. I took leftover flowers home so now the cabin finally smells and looks like spring. Because of the cold weather only the tulips and magnolias are blooming. I was so impressed by the quality of my students work. They have all grown so much in the last year. It shows how much hard work and patience will pay off in the long run.
We talked about everything you can think of and came up with some great ideas for fundraising for the art center.
The celebration of spring, food and drink will continue next month with a two day workshop at Maryhill Museum. We’ll be working outdoors near the colorful flower and sculpture gardens on Saturday, June 18th and Sunday, June 19th. We’ll meet at 11:00 am both days at the picnic tables on the north side of the site. Please bring your watercolor supplies and sketchbooks, food and drinks to share. Painting and a picnic! We’ll paint until 4:00 pm both days. The cost is $40 per day. Please sign up and pay early at The Dalles Art Center, 220 East 4th Street, The Dalles, OR 97058. You can also call to sign up at (541)-296-4759. I hope you all will join us. Dress in layers for painting outdoors.
I’ll be posting soon about my show at the Dalles Art Center titled “Iconography and Beyond”.
