January Paint Out

Our first paint out of the year was at Crane's Mill Marina. Our thanks to  Georgia Stok for scoping out the area for us! The weather was just beautiful and the location very peaceful. We painted to the sound of a gentle breeze, a few ducks and an occasional bass splashing in the lake. Pictured here are Teri McReynolds, Kris Kelson, Roger Snyder, Bonny White and Holly Vaughn. The photos of the day's paintings should be arriving soon!
