A few samples of the paintings created on the first day of my workshop.
What a day! Today was day two of my three day oil painting workshop and I am just sitting down to write my blog post. It's 10:48pm. Hmmm. I am exhausted!
My day started at 6:30am at the grocery store to prepare for the gourmet dinner I always cook my students during my workshops. The workshop started promptly at 9:00am and we painted all day while enjoying the fabulous air conditioning in my studio (while the heat sweltered outside). At 4:15 I ran inside the house to start preparing dinner.
On the menu for tonight was:
Crispy Bacon Wrapped Dates with Lemon-Basil Crema
Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa
Mixed Greens Salad with Mandarin Oranges, Dried Cranberries, Gorgonzola and Ginger Sesame Dressing
Yes, the menu items in blue do have links to the recipes. I promise if you make this meal you will have some very happy dinner guests. It's that good.
Dinner was served at 6:00 with lots of wine and a new favorite vodka-diet tonic-raspberry lemonade cocktail. During dinner we shared lots of stories about our lives, art, our fears, struggles, successes and what we hope to achieve. It was awesome.
I love days like today.
But I have another day of teaching tomorrow. Night. Night.
