This week I have been on an artists retreat in Monteagle, TN painting with 9 other artists. Each day we paint in the mornings and then go back out in the afternoons to paint. This week it rained everyday. We painted everyday either in our rooms or under a gazebo at the Assembly in Monteagle. We were leaving today and of course it was a beautiful day. After we checked out of our rooms we decided to stay and paint for a few hours. Above is my painting of the cottage "Thistle Dew" in watercolor. This weekend was Sawanee graduation so the Assembly was packed with parents, graduates and their friends. We met so many nice people I can't wait to go back in the Fall. Enjoy!
