I have been away from the blog for a week or so because last Thursday I had a partial knee replacement and am home recovering.   This one has been a little different from the one I had 4 years ago….but I am doing well and getting better slowly.  I started PT Monday and go again today.  I am anxious to get up and going and am a little impatient that it is slower than I want.  Many thank to all my friends who have come by, walked Lincoln, brought food and sent well wishes for my recovery.  I appreciate it so much.  And a special shout out to Sister who came from Georgia and took care of me.  She made everything so much easier and being spoiled was really nice!  I’m sharing with you today this special art…a Get Well card…that my sweet little friend Charlotte made for me.  It is my new favorite thing!  

We just wrapped up our 6th Artist Retreat at Capon Springs and Farm in beautiful West Virginia.  And Peggy and her son, Chris, have attended each one.  I met Peggy and Chris at Capon and they have been a delight to paint with over these 6 retreats.  Nice work guys and can’t wait till we paint together again!

We had so much fun at the Capon Springs Artist Retreat…and just look at the beautiful work these ladies created. We can’t wait to put the date on the calendar for next year. Watch for it!
The fabulous art work continued at Capon Springs & Farm yesterday as we painted and laughed and enjoyed creative fellowship in one of the most beautiful spots around. You must plan to join us next time!

What a great night of painting at Capon Springs and Farms for the beginning of out 6th Art Retreat. We LOVE it here! And everyone loves painting at Capon. Last night we had 13 painters give the Fall Barn a whirl. We had to take a break for BINGO. (I won jam!) And then some brave painters came back and finished their paintings while others will finish this morning. It’s a great day when you paint until 11 at night!!!!

These three young painters did amazing work on these paintings! They attend the Wednesday evening art class at The Studio and have been working on these paintings for a few weeks and wrapped them up last night. Great work!!! Our weekly classes at The Studio allows painters to paint the subjects of their choice and improve their art skills by working on color mixing, composition and brushwork.
