But if you can take your eyes off these five gorgeous lady longhorns for a minute, look in the background. There it is! There's Welcome Home Retreat! It officially opens October 1st, but my sisters and I got to spend a weekend there working (and playing) to get it ready.
~~~A women's retreat to inspire creativity in an environment of beauty.~~~
It was absolutely breathtaking... I kept asking my sister, "What if I want to book a weekend, but not craft or paint or scrapbook or quilt... Could I just come and "be" here?" Ha ha ha. I guess the answer is yes, but I'd miss out on the opportunity for creativity.
Click and have a look for yourself.
Or look see what's happening there on their Facebook.
If you're wondering about the painting... It's a big one! The hard part about painting on such a big canvas is that is stays in that "ugly" stage for a really really long time. Also, it was so far from one end to the other, I worried that one end wouldn't match the other end.
But... LOVE it! I loved working on it.
And... I may have secretly named those five cows after myself and my 4 sisters... matching each personality with a certain cow attitude... Hmmm... :)
