March 13 and 14 2010
We had a perfect weekend for painting. While the organizers were sweating out the Friday night rain, the artists were preparing for a weekend of painting. Mother nature was very good to us by providing plenty of sunshine, lots of clouds on Saturday with a blue, blue sky and perfect temperatures. I heard 14 artists participated and many of the visitors commented on how interesting it was to see all the various interpretations of the landscape.
I’d like to say thank you to all the Sierra Foothill Conservancy personnel and members involved with putting on the event. They were all so helpful and graceous to the artists, despite at times that, (I’ve heard this a few times), organizing artists is like herding cats. Thank you for a beautiful weekend, great company and gorgeous landscape. I can’t wait to see the exhibit of all the paintings next summer!
While I was busy painting, my husband photographed nature and people.
As near as I can tell Ginny Burdick is far left in the background. Karen is on the right in the foreground. Patrick Lacey is at one of the easels but I don’t know who was at the fourth easel.
