Painting in the Rain
Three good painting friends and I just spent a week painting in Wonderful West Virginia! We rented a great cabin at Pipestem Resort- deep in the mountains of southern West Virginia. Pipestem is chucked full of wonderful scenery and is also close to the New River Gorge National Park where we painted the Sandstone Falls one day. In this picture, we were painting on the banks of the Bluestone River in the Bluestone Gorge, which you reach by riding a tram deep into the valley down the side of a mountain. What a view! What an experience! Unfortunately it rained that day but we painted anyway - as you can see in this picture of me in my blue raincoat (which was given to me by my friend Theresa - she brought 4 of them home from her Niagra Falls Maid of the Mist boat experience.) Thank goodness for raincoats! We had fun anyway! I will post the painting in the future.
