|Skagit workshop group 2013|
I did my demo painting of the Skagit river so everyone decided to apply what I showed them to their own rendition of the same view.
The whole group did some amazing paintings and we all felt pretty good about the days work I went in to LaConner to visit the Seaside Gallery and get some dinner. FYI , The Brewery in town on main street makes the best pizza!
The weather just kept getting better as the day went on. The light as I walked to my car was amazing! I decided to try for one more fast, evening painting and found a spot on a dead end road by a salt marsh that I never saw before.

The mosquitoes and no-see-um nats were horrendous but the scene and the light was so spectacular I had to try and capture it. I spent about an hour getting the scene down as fast as I could with the light traveling very quickly.
Just as I was packing up the "Super Moon" started rising over the fields! What a sight! No time for another painting and I was beat! I called Mark and he ran out in his pickup with all his gear, racing to paint the moon .
