The French House 13037, Dreama Tolle Perry Workshop, Day 2, Carmel, IN by Texas Daily Painter Nancy Standlee

The French House 13037 
Oil on Ampersand Gessobord
12x12 in. (SOLD 3/2/13)

I painted this along with 19 other students in a Dreama Tolle Perry Oil workshop in Carmel Indiana about a week ago on Saturday February 23 or it could be called Paris in Indiana and both are like foreign countries to me. See my previous post when I discussed more about this lovely town of Carmel. Here is Dreama's painting of Backyard France HERE.

There were a few little groans when this image was passed out ( I might have uttered a little one) as the tulips on Friday were so much fun to paint and I really don't do houses very often. If you are painting buildings what could be better than a French backyard along with it?  The colors were dazzling and to see Dreama's color palette see her website HERE. My flower pots began to look like cupcakes with a few strokes of the palette knife but that only prepared me for day 3 so stay tuned.

These girls are the lunch bunch, the new friends who invited me to eat Italian food and Library food with them and there so many nice restaurants within walking distance IF you had a good arm to hang onto to keep from falling in the ice and I did. Thanks Heather.
