When we got together back in March to learn how to do origami boxes, it never ocurred to me that, one day, I'd be passing on what I'd learned to some classes of high school art students. Hey, I'm happily retired with more than 35 years of working in education behind me, so why would I want to be in front of a classroom full of kids again? But that's exactly what occurred yesterday!

What a joy to paint at The Palms on Pelican Cove Beach on Friday morning! It was a perfect beach day and we were all inspired by the loveliness!
There was a strong breeze on the beach: so strong that I had to hang my half-filled backpack from my easel to weigh it down to keep my canvas from shaking to the rhythm of the buffetting wind! Not complaining! The coolness accompanying those breezes were delightful! The waves coming into shore were impressive! Out at sea there were 10' swells!

We had a good time painting at the Botanical Garden on Friday morning. The weather held, and we were all able to end up with paintings we liked. As you can see, some of us took on the challenge of doing a mango-related painting that could be a contender for the poster that will advertise the Garden's upcoming Mango Mellee event.

I was working on a painting at home, so arrived at Cane Bay just in time for Show and Tell. The morning'd been gorgeous and the artwork was equally so! We thought we had a good spot to display our efforts, but I'm afraid Mother Sun sneaked onto some of the paintings while I was photographing them.

The morning started out bright and shiny at the Carambola Golf Course. The reflections in the first pond I drove past were captivating and there was an egret standing under a small palm tree, beckoning me to paint it.
