From the moment I drove past Whim's entry columns I knew that it'd be a great morning for painting! Elwin joined me and we traipsed all over the property discussing the pros and cons of the various subjects we encountered until deciding on the one that appealed the most. Tough choice! We were greeted by several of the staff members who, along with Whim's morning visitors, enjoyed watching our efforts materialize into images they recognized. Only 6 of us had come to paint and I found myself wishing that more could have been there to feel the love and enjoy the beautiful day!
Pat had brought the glass ornaments she'd painted during the week for our glass ornament project. We were all very impressed with them. We'll be selling hand painted ornaments before the Christmas holidays as a fund raiser to defray the costs of our Palletteer shows.
Sparkle and Yolanda, both new to Whim, had come by several times during the morning to see how we were doing. They said they'd heard a lot of good things about our group. Lily came by too. I'm sure she's the one who'd been telling Sparkle and Yolanda all about us... she made us feel VERY welcome and said we had an open invitation to come back to paint, anytime. Wow! We invited them to our show and tell so they could see what we'd accomplished in the morning's hours.

The enthusiasm and hospitality we felt painting at Whim was enervating; we'll be sure to paint there again soon!
