Lucky Girl

I am a lucky girl ......
Four years ago I received the opportunity to take on the administrative side of putting some art classes together in Virginia Beach.  I had no idea how to begin, or whether it would be successful.  Having  just completed the 10th class --- I think I've got the hang of it... maybe ....
(although there's something to learn from each one)

.... just back from another wonderful week of art with Ros Stallcup and a great group of women!  If you know Ros, then you know how much she brings to class -- great projects, great instruction --
sweet personality and lots of fun! 

 But there's also something really special about taking these classes at the beach.. 
whether its cloudy, sunny,

 chilly, warm, or rainy (even snow-like last Feb) --

the beach gives me a good feeling  ---  makes me feel calm and  revitalized all at the same time.
This past week was no exception. 

Make no mistake ... we are there to work (in between all our fun:)

you see .....  we're all doing the same project......
but there's room for individual expression

wouldnt you love for this to be your garden,
and walk right out to the beach?

where else can you hear someone say,
"Oh, your rust is lovely" ???

It can be a special time for mother/daughter bonding
Miss Opal is 95!!

this mother/daughter team met in the middle --
one came from way south, and one from the north

I got a wonderful, warm surprise from the group ..
still floating on air

there's time for special friendships to grow...

and then there's the picture that says it all.....
(Thanks, Bert)
happy friends and the ocean air
See you next year...
