Acrylic on panel
Notes From My Residency Journal
I spent my morning upstairs in the Fair Oaks Studio. It is wonderful to walk in the studio and see your paints laid out in order with your brushes, waiting patiently to begin the day's work. I always leave the studio as clean and orderly as I can. It is a very special place for me. I have spent so many happy hours there. I look forward to it each week during the summer.
Lunch was served at noon, marvelous chicken Alfredo with a stew of okra, tomatoes and onions. We had an experimental cake made with Guava that was good, but not Guavy enough. I will try again with a different recipe.
I left early today to teach with my mentor group of painters. We are meeting for the next five months at the Oak Hammock art room, a nifty studio. We were welcomed like royalty with a beautiful fruit and cheese tray and other goodies. We spent the afternoon enjoying good camaraderie and painting magic, followed by a lovely meal in the private dining room. I am so spoiled! I could get used to that treatment very quickly.
I forgot to take photos this week but we all had a swell time.
