I am so excited for this week! There are nine artists (including me) all moved in to the beach house here in Virginia Beach and everyone is amazing! Most of the artists arrived by 6:00 pm and quickly we got to know each other (with wine and cheese) and shared lots of stories about families, art and other workshops. Three of the local artists who are also attending the workshop also came by to meet everyone. I cooked dinner and we laughed and ate. Tomorrow we will be a very happy group of 13 palette knife painting artists!

After dinner it was time for me to head downstairs to paint. I know we will be painting the next few days but I really needed to finish my painting for tomorrow morning - Day Seventeen. Hopefully my east coast jet lag will ease up as some of us are going to go for an early morning beach walk (with coffee!) before we start the workshop at 9:00. The weather should be great!

Today's painting is only my second cupcake painting. I have had this photo for years and have always wanted to paint it. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Check out my new remodel blog for our new beach house in Ventura, Ca. Beginning this fall I will be teaching workshops at the beach. Come stay and paint with me! I have workshops scheduled in the next twelve months in South Pasadena, Ventura Beach, Newport Beach, Carmel, Indiana, Charlotte, NC, and Atlanta, Ga. Click here for more information!
