The weekend at Nimrod Hall Art Program was just wonderful.  So many lovely things to paint….so many nice people with whom to paint.  The best thing about the weekend at Nimrod (other than the uninterrupted time to paint) is the artists who are there to teach and to learn.  Everyone is generous with their time.

Yesterday morning before I left I had an opportunity to observe Fielding Archer‘s demonstration.  He taught the Still Life weekend session and even though I was there to take the Plein Air weekend that Andras Bality offered I had a chance to watch them both work.  (Be sure to click the links and check out both of these artists.  Their works are amazing!)

So much to learn in a short amount of time.  It was a terrific experience.  The Studio was well represented by Kay, Gretchen, and Kathy – all from my Wednesday morning art class.  We had a great time!

I’m back at Nimrod Hall for “Art Camp”.  I have been looking forward to it ever since I was here last year.  Last night after a little Wine & Cheese Meet & Greet and a marvelous dinner our instructor challenged us to a little quick sketch painting at dusk.  Well, it was almost dark….but who cares….it was fun!  Here is what I was able to do in about 30 minutes before it got too dark to see.  Looking forward to more new challenges today.
