Night at the Roxbury Studio

The Laroquettes are working on paintings to submit as Banner designs for Manassas! We have a hummingbird, iris, heron, icecream sundae, boy in a fountain, a camel and maybe a hot air balloon ? Who knows what else will be created? It is just great to be together to paint and enjoy each other's company. We will definitely do this again!

More weaving going on!

Here is tonight's Art Feast Class at the Loft Art Center in Occoquan. Many more people getting their weave on today! It was one of the more 'complex' themes for Art Feast. Everyone rose to the challenge and created some beautiful basket paintings and learned some useful techniques for painting baskets and many other things.  You go, girls! And Eugene! Hope you enjoyed your Happy Birthday surprise!  Next time: Colorful Snow. Less 'thinking' more playing!

I'm back to painting again!

After a few weeks dealing with herniated disks in my neck, surgery and recuperating, I am finally painting once again! These paintings took me back to Laroque and Collioure.

The Laroquettes are famous in France!

Here is an article about the Laroquettes Art Show with the Laroque Art Guild. If you can read French, you will read about how much fun we had painting all of the beautiful views in and around Laroque. The artists, both American and French, enjoyed meeting and getting to know each other throughout the week. The Mayor has requested that we do this every year! Well, OK I think we will!

Meanwhile, while we wait for our next trip, we will continue to meet, eat, kayak, paint and whatever else we can think of to do together! We are a special group of friends and artists.  Just look at us!
