Susan's Studio - Open One Year

Friday was a great day. Gene and I went to San Antonio to Susan Carlin's reception at her Studio. She has been there a year. Doesn't seem possible that it has been a year since we went there to help with the painting of the walls and ceiling. Wow, a year!

We met some dear friends in San Antonio for lunch, then went to the reception. Regina and her husband were there, too. It was a warm afternoon and a great party. Here are a few snapshots. I am terrible at taking photos lately but you may get the idea.

We surprised Susan ...

We had a little music.....


A little food......


A little camaraderie.....


Met the artists......
Bonnie Mann and Susan Carlin

and the others
Marilyn Moore

We had a good day today as well. I painted and will post about that tomorrow.

Thanks for introducing me to Susan last year. When we visited her in SA this winter, we had a great time. She is an excellent artist and a very friendly person.

Jo Castillo said...

Hi Regina, it is a beautiful painting. It was fun, need to do that more often!

fishing guy, I will pass your words to Susan.

Bag Blog, you are welcome. I always have fun and learn something with Susan.
