Dripping Springs Texas Workshop Report Day 2

                             'Road to the Bluebonnets '          6x8        Plein air pastel

Time sure does fly when you're having fun! I'm a day behind in my workshop report but we are having a wonderful time. Day two arrived with clear skies and promises of a sunny and hot day. I was relieved after hearing the thunder and rain late into the night. It was our first plein air day.

The crew of twelve students, Marsha and I headed out into the country to the Mt. Gainor  Inn. It is a peaceful spot with views of the Hill Country and bluebonnet meadows. We couldn't ask for a better place to spend the day painting. 

                               'Heavenly Hill Country'.             5x7.            Pastel 

We experienced Texas hospitality at its finest all day. The owners of the inn Laurie and Jerry were happy to have us and took great care of us with drinks and a wonderful lunch spread of sandwiches, fruit and hot from the oven raspberry and key lime bars!

The group did some wonderful paintings. It was a relaxed day surrounded by beauty. More tomorrow.

Heavenly Hill Country is gorgeous. Love those greens! I didn't realize that Texas is so pretty in the spring. I've almost read your whole blog, now I need to clean my house., :)
