Through the Gate

We ended our Florida workshop last week with a plein air outing in a beautiful garden in Tamarac on Monday. What a treat to paint under swaying palm trees with cool breezes and sunshine. The owner of this back yard haven stopped by my flower painting class with his chocolate Lab and invited us to paint on Friday, he had heard we were scouting locations in his neighborhood and he was an artist, too!
We had shade to paint in most of the day, tables and chairs for the ladies who requested them, and a surprise drenching by the neighbor's sprinkler systems a few minutes into our painting session. After shifting around a bit, we were able to finish our morning studies and move indoors for yet another gourmet lunch by Diane, one of our workshop hosts. Thanks so much Dean, for letting us camp out on your lawn for the day and paint your bougainvillea!
