Inspired by Carol King!

Last week I joined a group of painters that get together twice a month at the clubhouse in our new neighborhood.  One of Carol King's posts got me motivated to do that.  Hooray!  This is one way to get back in the swing of things.  Everyone is really nice.  The guy who teaches the class does a great job.  He does a demo at the beginning of the class and then gives individual help.  You have a choice of several things to paint.  I chose tulips.  I'm not finished with them yet.

In April, we're going to work with pastels in one session and watercolor in the other session.  I'm looking forward to it.

Yesterday, Jim and I went to the gallery at the Bellagio to see the exhibit of Yousuf Karsh photos.  I think it will be in the gallery until September.  If you come to Las Vegas between now and then (By the way, our weather right now is superb!), be sure to see the show.  Check out the garden while you're at the Bellagio, too.  Wow!  I even got to see the famous Winston Churchill photo and have my picture taken with Winston's photo!  They allowed photos!

I'm waiting for the last layer to dry on a painting of a kitten and I'm going to post it.  In the meantime, here are some photos from yesterday.

Love seeing you and your husband in the Bellagio gallery. How cool. Those flowers are amazing.

Thank you, Linda! My husband took those photos. If you ever visit Las Vegas, you have to visit the Bellagio. The gardens are fabulous and free!
