An Introduction to Acrylic Painting Workshop 
The second workshop of the year was pretty private. Most of my regulars could not come due to Mardi Gras parade on the route to the facility.  We have painted the leopard frog along with a very pleasant chit chat as usual. We are becoming quite a tight knit group here! New participants are greeted with warm welcome by all the regulars, we also miss the onece-regulars that somehow cannot make it anymore.  We miss all the familiar faces! I hope to see you all well and happy in the next month’s workshop where we will paint an alligator peaking out to the world from the bayou! I would like to take this opportunity to thank  Ranger Destiny Garcia for all her support and enthusiasm for our program and for providing a wonderful accommodation for this workshop. Hope to see you all well next month. Until we meet again, stay safe please!Image attachmentImage attachment+Image attachment
