And the fun extended to yesterday's gathering! The plein air group I paint with once a month had a 'mini-show' and luncheon at Elodie Farms. There were over 20 of us for a sit-down, incredible!!!! luncheon served by Dave, Elodie's owner .... lots of goat cheese, a melt-in-your-mouth pork roast and garlic mashed potatoes, and a 'forget-the-diet' pecan pie that was out of this world!!!! Added to the awesome meal was the opportunity to see the work of the other artists who are, like I am, typicaly absorbed in their painting while we're together, and the only one who really has time to 'visit' is Charles, who tends to stroll and strum and sing among the working artists. I cannot tell you the glorious work I viewed! WOW! And Dave, wonderful, wonderful man, has so many of OUR paintings in his home/restaurant/meeting facility -- selling them for us to his dining and meeting patrons. Blessings -- all!
Today Charles' jam group meets for a lunch as well. As I'm typing, C is downstairs putting the fnishing touches on the stew he is making for his group. It's in the 20s here and cold, so the stew will be a terrific prelude to their afternoon music-making. I'll be able to enjoy it all as I tuck myself in my room to paint!
Enjoy the day!
