Temecula Never Better

Is this beautiful or what??  4 days in April in Temecula, Ca....   ;-)  . I've been to Vina De Lestonnac Retreat Center many times over the years but never in April and  it was never more beautiful than this week. .
A  requested show and tell brought to class by Keats Scott  made me smile... This plain fun piece is 3 " ink painted ladies" sketched from a long ago photo. Commercial 'garden-like' fabrics behind and in front with PIGs in the Garden" To me, the lady on the left  clearly resembles FDR.  Too fun! This piece will be for sale in one of Keats  Artist Co-ops.  What Fun!!!!
