I just returned from Barbara Mallonee's workshop in Castine... A three day event that renewed my creativity. The really neat happening was the fact that we could use any medium but Barbara brought some watercolors that we could use. I picked up the brush and was immediately hooked. i hadn't painted in watercolor in 40 years and didn't remember much but Barbara was so patient with me. I am posting lots of pictures of the Castine area and the workshop.
We started each morning with breakfast at the Castine inn ( www.castineinn.com) This was no ordinary breakfast, each morning I had to take a photo of my breakfast because it was so beautifuly presented... and the taste,,,Wow!
Each day we began at the Wilson Museum. A museum that i highly recommend. The staff is so helpful and nice.
Day one ended with a critique of our drawings and paintings... I will say that most of these paintings are works in progress.
