Fall at Sprewell Bluff
This past Friday, four of us women got together to spend the night, talk art and basically just have a good time. We were to meet four more of our plein air group, The Fall Line Gang, the next morning at Sprewell Bluff to paint the fall foliage. Well it turned really cold...our first freeze of the year... with a very brisk wind. So-o-o, we four cheated. We went out Friday afternoon before it froze and took pictures. Saturday morning, over hot coffee and muffins, we chose a scene and put it on the computer screen, then painted our 'plein air' around the dining table. The guys were guys and braved the cold, as did Matthew's wife, Rita, who is a photographer. We didn't envy them one bit! Preston came in mid-afternoon to thaw out and join us for a late lunch of delicious homemade chicken tortilla soup. Smart guy! We missed the others, but we'll catch up with them next time when the weather cooperates better.
Three of us will be in Madison, GA to paint this Thursday, Nov 11th, 11-4:30 if any of you would like to join us. Just email me for details.
