Sullivan's Island Painting Expedition, November 2010

It's been nearly a week since I've returned from a week-long painting trip in a beach house on Sullivan's Island, S.C. with 11 other artists. I've been searching for the words to describe how much fun this was, how much camraderie we shared and how much I learned from the intense and talented artists I painted with.

First of all, the artists and the links to their sites:

The artist who signed up to go, should have been there but couldn't make it:

And two artists who were with us a lot and generously did so much for everyone, Shannon by feeding us an incredible oyster roast and letting us set up easels in her home and Stanka by standing in FREEZING cold while we painted her:

This painting group was set up by Sadie, Alia and Diane, the amazing, hardworking artists who set up the Women Painting Women blog . They've written in their blogs about the group and the terrific show at the Robert Lange Gallery in Charleston, SC . Please, visit their blogs to see more photos and hear more about our group. My heartfelt thanks to these wonderful artists for creating this very special event and to the gallery for making the show such a hit.
