September 9 - Amicalola River Watershed, 9 s 12 Acrylic

Here's my first demonstration painting for the Color Boot Campers in Georgia this evening. I hadn't lifted my brushes since leaving California, and was so itchin' to get to a painting by today (three days later) that even before the folks came in for the evening's welcome, I was at it. The result's a 9 x 12 acrylic of a section of the Amicalola River where we were yesterday, and I'm pleased with the outcome so far. I may work some more on it with the light of day, however tonight was the welcome and orientation for the week ahead. The hustle and bustle of the new arrivals and the warm welcome by all was delightfully distracting. A wonderful group of artists are here, and the next five days will be challenging and full of laughter.

Very satisfying to see the acrylic paints in their pill boxes make it successfully in my checked luggage. No leaks and still loads of wet paint!

Now here's a picture of one of Fay's terriers, Lizzie, who is making my stay at the farm more dog-happy. She's adopted me and was my nighttime companion, easing the missing of my own beloved "Q" who is waiting back in California.

September 9 - Georgia on my Mind, Workshop!

Life is wonderfully good right now.

Imagine if you will, an early morning in September, in the piney woods of North Georgia, on the back of a good, 17-hand horse headed out for an early morning ride. All of that is what happened for me this morning, and here's a photograph of me on "Sister" --now I hope you can see that she is a white mare, because the flash of my grin may blind you a bit!
I'm in Georgia, on the Sunday beginning a week-long Color Boot Camp tomorrow, along with my hostess Fay, doing a welcome this evening for 12 attendees. I'll be posting my demonstration paintings for all the Color Boot Campers out there who want to see more examples of how the Color System works in this light.

In this photograph, you can see the Georgia mist rising--it was a glorious morning!

Again, thank you for allowing me to come into your life a bit. As I close, here's an image of the some the trail we traversed... beautiful.
