It's My Birthday weekend!

"Fulmor Lake" 11 x 14 oil on canvas board/palette knife.

Last Friday a group of artists headed up to Idyllwild for their yearly paint out.   It's always a beautiful place to go and paint.  This year we rented a cabin in Idyllwild and went a day early to paint.  I had always wanted to paint Fulmor Lake so this was our first stop.  Upon arriving we read we needed a parking pass.   After finding a market that sold the passes we set up and started painting.   Within an hour Pat and Sandy had enough of the bugs and decided to go on into town.   Louise, Joan and I were not bothered with the bugs and stayed to finish our paintings.  

Now you can see why I wanted to paint.   The bugs were annoying every once in a while but mostly they were not so I was able to complete my painting.
We then went into town for a nice lunch and to pick up the keys for our cabin.   It was a beautiful 3 story cabin, nestled on Tahquitz Drive.   It was so beautiful, that Louise decided to paint there on Sat.   The rest of us drove up the rode and painted Lily Rock.   I loved the meadow below.   An art enthusiast who came out to watch us paint said those were wild roses and would soon be in bloom.   What a site that must be.  

"Lily Rock and the Meadow"    12 x 12 oil on canvas board/palette knife.

In the afternoon we went to Strawberry creek where I painted this 12 x 12 on canvas.  After we finished painting and turned in one painting for the show, we cleaned up and headed to dinner. 

I want to thank my friends  for sharing my birthday weekend with me and for the beautiful dinner.   We took photos and once I receive them I will update this posting. 

When I got home, my husband and son took me to one of my favorite places for dinner.   Benihana's..... 

Until next time, PLEASE ENJOY THE ART.    Terry d. Chacon
