Outdoor Painting Challenge 2015

Family time at the Outdoor Painting Challenge

This was the first year that I was able to participate in the Opus Outdoor Painting Challenge in Victoria.

It landed on Mothers Day this year and I thought that might be an obstacle until a light bulb went on “Ask Mom to do it with me!” and fortuitously my daughter asked to come along as well. Best ask my sister too.

✔ pay attention to Mom

Pray for dry weather and . . . what am I missing?

. . .  That’s it – all the men in the family.

But aren’t we lucky? They have volunteered to make a full – on dinner for us! Excellent, the day is coming together. 👸

An Ideal Location on the Waterfront

We checked in later than planned , armed late ourselves with cups of tea and settled in to enjoy the day on the dock outside Canoe Brewpub.
