This grey day at the coast was warm and pleasant enough to be able to take out the paperwork and get busy--what a great spot for it!  This scene is of one of the participants in the Kim English workshop in September while we were taking a lunch break.  The rest of the day went from cloudy to pouring rain as it on the Oregon coast.  We tried very hard to keep painting, standing under a big tree, putting up umbrellas as we could, placing the model in a comfortably dry spot, but the weather finally got the best of us!  The workshop was sponsored by Art in the Mountains and they had put together a great meal for us that afternoon of fresh-caught salmon, crab and cod (I think!).  A great feast which took our minds off the soaking we got!

This is my 600th post--how did that happen?
