First I checked in and received my free gift bag with a bottle of water, a bamboo mat that rolls up to hold your paintbrushes, and a nail brush.
Then I went to Jerry's and bought two new watercolor brushes for the class. When I checked out, I got a free Jerry's T-shirt.
My class last night was with Florida artist Tom Jones. The workshop was called Sunrays Filtering Through the Forest.
The subject matter reminded me very much of a scene from Ashe County in the North Carolina mountains, where we have a weekend place.
When I went into the room, I found a slimmer Tom Jones, who has lost twenty pounds since last year. Also, I was delighted to find that there were only four students registered for this class, and one of them did not show up. So, we got lots of individual attention!
Tom provided the paper and paints. He did a great step-by-step demo. He brought his painting around for us to see up close after each step.
