My painting ladies at Quilt Hawaii 2008

Why do these  ladies  look  so happy?
well for starters, they are in shady patio on the big Island of Hawaii .
 and  they are painting fabrics
and as some of our fabric are almost  dry ,
 some of us have started to dance  because that is  what the light hearted feeling of making art does this  to some of us...myself included!
(or i might break into song , usually a rock and roll line that strikes a cord.. )
here are some of my "painters of the pacific"  in action.
 (a few went out for ice coffee or something so i didn't get  your mug shot)


 in a  balmy , comfortable atmosphere with encouragement, paint, and new and renewed friends , a day like no other is created  that is full of  laughter and color.  these faces are in the art journal of my heart as i love to paint and i love to share my paintbrushes with folks like these. i bring the paints  too and serve  them up with a spoon to your palette.what is you favorite
