A Day with Richard Schmid and the Putney Painters

I was lucky enough to have been invited to spend the day with Richard Schmid and the Putney Painters for a lovely day in Bellows Falls. They were a warm and generous group. I felt that I learned a lot and was totally inspired to continue to try to create beautiful paintings.
Thanks to you all!
