Sit Awhile and Paint

What a pleasant place to sit and paint on a hot day. It was about 78 degrees when we arrived at 10:00 this morning. Everyone found a spot of shade with a wonderful view of Karen's garden. She claimed that the garden isn't at its best right now - could have fooled us! It is beautiful!
Karen keeps a colorful and lush garden and it has all kinds of things to discover - plants and interesting objects. AND she serves peach iced tea to my classes.
The paintings all reflected how relaxed and comfortable everyone was. Nice job, Class! And thanks a lot Karen for having us!
