Hempel 'Bootcamp' (8/21-8/24/14)

So much fun (and work)...as usually.  This was the seventh year but really a great time. Attending were Carolyn Larkin, Rick Brawner, Linda Cutler, Mike McCabe and Karen DeNoto. 

I had discovered some new and very challenging locations for us to go to paint.  Thursday we painted at Chippewa Resort in the morning (just Jim, Carolyn and I) and then the whole group painted at the Blue Bayou to get a vision of The Island on Manitowish Lake.  Friday we spent the entire day at Coon's Franklin Lodge (including a delicious lunch!) and Saturday we drove an hour and a quarter to Bonds Falls.  It's a beautiful place but SO difficult to paint rushing water!!  We took a picnic lunch to give us a break around mid-day. 
Here are a few of my group pix and paintings...
