Painting with Laurel Daniel, at Laguna Gloria

Laguna Gloria is a beautiful historic estate, that is part of the Austin Museum of Art. This is where Laurel Daniel teaches her wonderful painting classes. As a part of our reunion, Debbi organized a two day still life painting workshop just for us! Thank you, Debbi! The first photo shows a glimpse of Laguna Gloria. What you can't see are the beautiful grounds, with a lagoon, and huge old oak trees, along with strolling peacocks. The next photo shows Laurel, demonstrating how to arrange the palette, and mix colors. The final photo shows our group in deep concentration, applying Laurel's ideas to our paintings. This was a fabulous workshop! Laurel is a great teacher! Thank you, Laurel!

We look so serious - though it was all sheer joy!

We did hunker down, though, didn't we? ;)
Nice photos, Nancy. It was great to see you, and I hope you're feeling better!
