Unexpected Beauty

Under Route 84...

...there is a beautiful view of the Delaware River

Peter, Paul and I went photographing this evening and visited a relatively new, favorite spot. Mostly I went for a walk while they photographed, but I did take a few photos of my own -- here are two I really liked. Click here, to see photos I posted from this location in the spring.

Paul is 21!

Early in the day, Peter and Paul talk some Cy at the Met

Later that day, Paul proclaims, "so this is what beer tastes like..."

Workshop, Day 5

Joe gets his photo with Santa

It's the end of another great workshop week. Peter shared so much and it seems that everyone learned a lot and really enjoyed themselves. We did. Thank you to Kim and Mark of Hudson River Valley Art Workshops for all that they did to make it a great week and thank you to all the artists who participated for making this a truly wonderful experience. Peter will be back at the Greenville Arms 1898 Inn in 2014. Until then, his next workshops are listed on his website. Keep painting!
