"Augusta GA Fountain"

Really quick. I painted between WPSE (Women Painters of the Southeast) receptions this past weekend in Augusta, GA. How great it was to see and feel Spring!!!!

This was right before the town filled with Masters enthusiasts. My easel was set up under a cherry tree bursting with blossoms. 

A little tough to then drive right back into winter-ish weather. One afternoon and nine hours in the car later and there were snow flurries and ugly weather. Yikes!

I still hope to get around to posting beaucoup photos from the WPSE exhibit. Life tends to overflow with plenty to share ... making it tough for me to keep up.
