|I had to use a chair as an easel because I forgot mine!|
|Karen and Patricia hard at work.|
Another local artist and friend, Peter Senesac joined us and we were able to start painting at dusk. It soon became extremely dark. Unfortunately, it was very cloudy so there was little moonlight to help give us highlights to paint in the dark and for the astronomers to see the planets and the stars. The night was still fun with delicious strawberry shortcake for the artists made by Tim's wife, Joanne. Karen's family also joined her and enjoyed the gardens and activities. When the night took over, I soon discovered that my headlight, meant to help me see to paint, became a lighthouse for the local bug population! So Patricia and I decided we would finish our paintings at home. Fun was still had by all.
