Fall Retreat Fun

Pictures of the presentation of Sandy Baker's "pass-around" painting to our sweet and wonderful kitchen team from the retreat. They both were overwhelmed and appreciative.  The painting was added to and signed by each in the watercolor group.    What a fun retreat, Diane Leszcz was a great leader and organizer!!

Linda Wilmes shares a Mural

Linda Wilmes reports;

I have finally gotten the image of the entire mural, I painted for the American Legion in St. Charles.  It measures 5.5' x 36'.  This was a challenge for the photographer, Gary Rose, but he corrected the lighting and made it happen.
Since the mural  is a private organization, and many won't be able to view the mural, thought I would send it out.
