Thanks, Patricia.  I am so proud of their progress.  We are now doing it weekly instead of twice a month.  We have so much fun together.

He was meeting with his family, but his wife was there.

Thanks, Val, I will pass the compliments on to the class.

 O0 Don't want anyone under the weather. Seems to be a few around here already with colds.... sounds so strange to say that when we are still at a 'cool' 85-90F !  :sweat:
Cheers, Val

Hey, Val, the handsome young fella was in class today.  He did a great seascape and we matted it.  He said it was the first real painting he ever did.  So proud of it.

Here is the class beaming with pride at the Christmas cards they made with the crumpled paper technique.  What a wonderful group of people.  They make it fun for me.  I am so proud of how far they have come in just over a year.

 :heeha: Oh my stars and garters!!! Look at you all! Such beautiful cards, how I wish I had a mailbox you could send them to.  :smitten: Gorgeous work everyone!!!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Mea, do let the handsome young fella know that I am so taken with his lovely seascape that he is forgiven for missing last class!  ;)     :2funny:

Group hug to you all, you have made my day today.  :hug:       :congrats:
Cheers, Val

Thanks, Dennis, Rick, and Val. 

Met a woman today who heard about my class and is going to join.

Hope the class does not get too big.
