“Befores” and “afters”

Judy Formato collects people – from bus rides, parties, meetings and invites them to her “POP” gatherings – Painting on the Patio. Yesterday I met her collection of very talented and welcoming women who have been meeting for 3 years to paint, chat and share resources.

Most of the women were doing water-color.  I experimented with my newly purchased pastels to color two of my quickie life drawing sketches I had done in class. 

The afternoon was topped off with wine and snacks.  Judy served a verrrrry tasty egg plant dip that had zing from some delicious pepper sauce imported by the family fine Italian food company Formato Brothers.

Here are my “befores” and “afters”:

Hmmmm . . . looks like they are all "afters" . . . after drinking
Hmmmm . . . looks like all the drawings are “afters” . . . afters drinking wine . . .

    1. Jan,
      Thanks for the “nice work”!! Actually I’m not feeling better. The last workshop I facilitated did me in . . . Trying to take it easy and not isolate at the same time – tricky balancing act.
