Sisters of the Eucharist Villa in Bridal Veil


Today I met Kathy Allegri, Carolyn Rondthaler and Carrie Holst in Bridal Veil at the Sisters of Eucharist Villa. Kathy Allegri arranged all this and it was a privilege to visit there. We got to see the inside of the beautiful Villa and go anywhere we wanted on the grounds. A person can't just go up there..you need a special invitation and we are lucky that Kathy did this for us.
We were treated to the entire story (of how the Sisters came to live there) by Mother Michael. She also told us about the positives associated with Montessori teaching...and why it is so important for Franciscan Nuns to live "in nature". It was a great outing.

This is a wonderful composition, especially with color temperature and value.

You've created a perfect sense of the dazzling white building in the sunshine and the cool, welcoming shadows below. I love it!

thanks so much..I like this painting and I am not able to put my finger on why. Maybe because it is an interesting mix of light and dark.

Celeste, you captured the shapes of light and shadow that change all day in that area. Just say "when" for autumn painting.
