This 12" square painting won a memorial award at the recently ended Beaufort Art Association's 2014 Spring Show. I ordered the French doors for my studio this morning............I am getting really excited about the studio renovation and ordering the doors made it seem real somehow. Also, a group of us at BAA have begun a plein air group and met for the first time this past Monday - we had a great time and it was fantastic to be painting with a group again! I have such great memories of the Westport Art Group (WAG) plein air group and it amazes me how long it has taken for me to feel like I completely live here now. I guess two years isn't all that long but it makes me realize how deep our roots go and how disruptive relocating is.
