A Quiet night at the art group

It's unusual to go to my art group and have space to
move around.  But after the cold weather, ice and sleet,
yesterday, heavy rain and warnings of severe thunder storms
kept people at home tonight.  I was glad I went out.  The model
was lovely,  and the whole painting came to me easily.

It was a good night.  What a pleasure.  The rain is
still coming down, and all of our snow will be gone
tomorrow.  But there is nothing like a night of listening
to opera, talking to other artists, and painting to make
it seem like all is well with the world.

Have a making-art-and-loving-it day.

I'm glad you got out on a dreary evening and enjoyed yourself. I need to do the same- it is just hard to leave the house once I am warm.

Lovely painting.

Hi Nicki,

Thanks so much. I agree, but it was warm here yesterday, and crazy warm today. Tomorrow we plunge back down, but I don't think it will be as cold as it is there.

Miss you,

XO Barbara
