It’s always a full and busy day when I am teaching art at Capon Springs Resort and Farm.  I love it here so I don’t mind at all.  I usually am up at 5:30 or so (but that’s normal for me) and have some coffee, come down to the Meeting House to check messages and then set up for classes before breakfast.  Breakfast is always a large fare of bacon, eggs, pancakes and all the fixin’s but first we raise the flag and sing the National Anthem….maybe my favorite part of the day.  Then I help people paint!  I hope that is there favorite part of the day.  I love helping people who have never even tried discover that they actually can paint!  And then it’s fun to help those who are accomplished painters improve their skills or try something new.  Then it’s off to a BIG lunch and a quick rest before the afternoon Open Studio sessions.  While I don’t “really” instruct in the afternoon it seems like I usually do because I will come in to check on folks who are working on their own and am happy to help if I can.  If I can I get to sneak away to the Spa for a soak or a treatment and then it’s down for dinner (Spaghetti last night with Chocolate Cake and ice cream for dessert) and whatever special entertainment the evening holds.  Last night it was BINGO.  I can’t explain what a special place Capon Springs is.  You must come experience it for yourself.  Make plans to do it soon!
