November just might be my favorite month -- 
certainly it is in the top three - 
right up there with Christmas and my birthday! 

  In addition to all the good food and family fun of Thanksgiving,  
I look forward to spending a week in November 
At the Beach -- with Ros Stallcup.     
I've been doing that every year since 2002 
and it is definitely one of the highlights of my year.

At home I like to sleep in whenever possible, 
but at the beach I'm up early enough to catch the sunrise every morning!   

Can you blame me when this is my reward?  What a way to start the day..

It gets even better though ... when we get to class.  

There's time to catch up with old friends, and make new ones, 

while still learning lots of decorative painting lessons from our favorite pro!  

Ros Stallcup has an extraordinary talent - not just for her beautiful paintings, 
but for the ability to guide us to our own beautiful paintings.   

I cant think of a better way to spend a girl's vacation -- can you?

 I'll definitely be back next year.  
Come join us..
