Today I want to tell you about water color painting with my sister in Lodi. Each year we accompany our husbands to a military vehicle show in Lodi, CA. They collect WWII stuff and we being the great wives we are, endure their hobby (kind of like they endure ours). My sis is a great painter and she wanted to do some plein air painting and she took me with and gave me a little lesson.
In Lodi there are many, many wineries. One of the conditions we make with the hubbies is to take us wine tasting one day of the trip - usually we will take a WWII Jeep and travel the back roads with the wind in our hair but this year it rained. In any case in the past we had visited Jessie's Garden Winery and my big sis chose Jessie's Garden to paint.
Jessie's Garden has a great barn and lots of beautiful trees, roses and animals for inspiration.

|And here it is my first attempt. I think I had a pretty good lesson from my sis... wouldn't you say?|
