Took Trudy, 8 year old adopted dog, and headed South to paint with several other artists in Bosque County. Had a delightful time. Every night we all ate together and usually had our lunches together. Found a motel that would let you keep your dog with you for an additional $50. Dog and I took walks together every day and she loved being a part of the fun of sharing a glass of wine with other artists.
One day it was so cold that I set up a still life in motel room and painted there. Here is an image.
