The picture above shows all 12 of us holding our completed creations. I know, I'm getting ahead of myself, but this is the only picture I have of everyone....from left to right, artist and home base (I hope; the picture is small and my eyes, well, they're 62 like the rest of me): Jacquie, Florida; Sue, Illinois; Marita, Oregon; Linda, Florida; Juliet, W. Virginia (or maybe just Virginia); me!, New York; Jen, California; Patty, Florida; Val, Michigan; Elena, Florida; Gina, Oregon, and Lillian, Canada.
First, some shots of artists at work, and works in progress:
I love the way each and every piece came out. Some turned theirs into books, and some left them as is, planning on having them framed for display. Who could blame anyone? Look how gorgeous:
We went outside and posed for closeups with our creations, in a suitably beautiful setting, by a hibiscus (bush? tree?).
And last, but surely not least, our wonderful host, Elena
Well, this was a long and full day, so even though it isn't over, I'll end now, and pick up in the afternoon of Day 3 for my next post.
