Me (Marlynne)  & special friend Hope on porch of Weinstrasse Log Cabins where we have stay the last 3 years. This was Earth Day so we created the banner and it hung here all week.One of our favorite places to paint was the Frisella Nursery. They had a delicious complementary brunch ready for us. Most every day there was a social or two with  delicious food and wine. I didn't drink the wine but brought home 38 beautiful blue, green & amber bottles!  In Defiance there was also a car show. Our Hosts Mark & Jan Cross brought their old Willy. I picked out this beautiful old black 40's Chevy Truck for husband Maurice & I to pose by! At the Beautiful Montelle Winery  afternoon paintout we were honored to have Mary Engelbreit, well know Artist, Illustrator and Author present for a book signing and later judge for our show Our friend Lisa Carmon from my favorite Stone Ledge Antiques in Augusta is in the picture also, she had a fantastic social for us at her shop on Monday.  Local School Art Teacher, Kimberly Alsop invited us to see her Gypsy Caravan and  Artistic Villa Home they created out of a metal garage! It was just amazing to see what she and her husband had put together! She also has a group come weekly to put their junk together and create these terrific metal sculptures I would sure love to be one of those friends if I lived there! It was a very fun week even with the cold weather and we plan to be there again next year!
