A Painting class from Japan

My first painting class this summer came all the way from Yokohama Japan!
they have visited my booth at quilt shows for many years
 and this was the year they wanted lessons.
fortunately art is a lot like laughing to me .
 we all do it in the same language, mostly.
they wanted to paint flowers and fabric and so we did.
 for two days.
 each day they took the bus out from Waikiki and we painted up a storm.
 i did allot of demos instead of words and they did a great job, as you can see.
 now these ladies have fabric that they painted to use in their own quilt designs.
they also now have good brushes, little pots of paint, and many, many ideas to play with.
these  sessions  are  my  most  favorite  kind  of  days!

nice palette!

Which one is yours?
