One weekend, 3 1/2 paintings…

The Samish Island Paint Out is a five-day art retreat that happens three times a year. Artists from all disciplines and experience levels enjoy a break from “real life” and a chance to create as much art as we want.

We just finished the September session, and it was a very productive three days for me (I went up Thursday through Saturday). The painting at far left was started Saturday morning and is about half done. The blue roan Arabian and the lighthouse were both started and completed over the weekend, and the foal was finished up. Each painting uses half of a 22″ x 30″ sheet of watercolor paper.
