7th Wilmur Painting Workshop

I was recently invited to teach at the 7th Annual Wilmur Workshop held outdoors for a week. What a fantastic group of people that treated me royally!!
We covered a lot of ground both physically for me, and figuratively for everyone. There are a few missing from this photo. There were 15 attended.  This was my second time teaching for them and I thoroughly enjoyed it each time. Thanks again, group! Keep in touch.
