Last night's class was cancelled due to the boiler needing to be repaired; I am leaving for TX on Thursday, so I will miss the next 3 classes as well. It is a long time to go without a "Mark fix." Cynthia and I are driving to Dallas for the opening of Nomadas del Artes show at the Southwest Gallery and then driving to Fredericksburg on Sunday for a paintout with PAAC and the Texas Plein Air group (OPS) for the week. Fredericksburg is in the hill country of Texas which is known for its bluebonnets. I will try to keep up with the blog on the trip. I have never been to Texas and I am looking forward to the trip. It has been a long time since I have done a road trip. A friend of mine from my life as an Army Brat has told me there is someone we knew from Munich American HS living in Fredericksburg on a lovely farm and that I must call him and paint on his property. I will see if time allows.
