About halfway between August 17 and September 18th LaVerne and I were treated to a birthday dinner and surprise by Barbara and Judy at the ranch. They had a really adorable Halloween themed table set. AND we had gluten free pizza and Caesar salad which was totally delicious.
Our “surprise” came after dinner when an artist from Gruene arrived to give us a painting class. She guided us step by step through the process of painting a pumpkin. After I got my background painted in I decided it was just too skinny.
Of course I wore pink since that’s one of my favorite colors…next to turquoise. Barbara is in the background – she is perpetually doing stuff for other people – like the mother in “A Christmas Story” who never gets to sit down to eat.
Ouch – LaVerne looks like that easel is in her nose!
LaVerne and Judy – they could be sisters they look so much alike! Not sure what happened to Judy’s nose – obviously LaVerne’s was caused by that easel up her nose!
Anyway – here LaVerne is showing off her masterpiece. Were we posing?
NOOO – totally unposing for these pics. I liked the pumpkin but I really hate the leaf and have thought of a dozen and one ways to cover it up!
We had a meeting the next morning to plan for our upcoming Vintage Market Faire. And guess what? You are all invited.
It will be held right here at Rio Star Ranch.
