Happy Weekend..Art in the Garden at Villa Catalana

Happy Weekend, Art Friends! This is a new painting that I took in to the Thursday Art Discussion. To see what the other painters brought...go HERE.

What are you doing this weekend.....? This is the beautiful Villa Catalana where I and a bevy of other artists will be painting "live" on Saturday evening. (Reservations to attend are required: see below). 
(I know...it looks like Italy or Spain! but the gorgeous Villa Catalana is in Oregon City).

Here are the details:

What a beautiful floral painting, Celeste. My eyes move all around the canvas of their own will, it seems! Oh to be able to visit this place, hear the music, and watch all of the artists (including you) paint. I believe the paparazzi will enjoy himself too!

Lovely floral with delicate shadings. I has a nice feel to it Celeste--as does the Villa Catalana. Happy painting there and do have a sip of their Bordeaux for me. Enjoy.

What glorious colors in your floral painting, Celeste.
I am so envious of your art lifestyle in Oregon - always neat events going on. This one sounds fabulous and I hope you write about how it goes.
