Despite the cold it was a great place to paint. After we got to a stopping point some of us left and the rest of us went to lunch and then back to paint. By this time it really had warmed up to a very nice temperature. We were glad that we had returned. The nature center is such an amazing place. Several of us said that we felt like we were on a vacation just being there surrounded by the beautiful scenery.

|The paint was wet and shiny, so my study looks lighter here than it really is.|
|Jill brought several paintings showing her work . I bought this one she painted at Port Aransas, one of my favorite places.|

This was a very intensive class. I think all of us were exhausted at the end of each day, but still we had time for fun. There were 15 of us in the class and I knew, and had painted with all but one of them. The first evening after class we met at my friend Maryann's property for a bonfire and cookout.We had hot dogs and wine and a lot of other great things.
