It's been a whirlwind of a week. I've been spending most of it with Leslie Saeta riding shotgun in my Subaru. Which was more fun than I've had since I Don't Know When.
We arrived last Saturday night in Falmouth MA, and we were hosted by the very gracious Linda Collins. It happened that all three of our ever-lovin' spouses were abroad (yes, Canada counts), and we were left to think only about the week ahead.
We had a blast. As Leslie taught her workshop, Linda and I tried hard to be supportive and quiet. it helped that we painted.
We capped the week off with a visit to Paul Schulenberg's figure drawing/painting group on Wednesday night. OMG, I want to rent a room in someone's beach shack and live that P'town life! Paul was so warm and hospitable to us, and for the record: he paints like a rockstar. His group of 16 or so artists were unbelievably talented and welcoming and friendly. I can't even begin to tell you about the model, except to say she was exceptional.
I'll post some of the palette knife paintings I did... under duress. But as my friend Linda reminded me, I always tell her that if you want to learn something new, you have to buy what they're selling. Clearly I need to work at this!
