Even though I just returned from North Carolina with the Pieces of Eight, I am posting this view of the Grand Tetons from a previous vacation. You will be seeing North Carolina paintings soon, as we had a wonderful time painting mountain streams and striking vistas. It was rainy and in the 40s when we got there, but warmed up to perfect weather as the week progressed. We had just as much fun as we always do, and that's a lot. We welcomed two new members and ate and painted and laughed. Below is the view of Grandfather Mountain from Cindy's place. Look for photos and paintings from our trip on the Pieces of 8 blog. Check in frequently, there will be some surprises!
