The weather was "iffy", but the rain held off for the entire afternoon this past Sunday. It was a very delightful three and a half hours of painting in the Governor and Susan Corbett's lovely garden in Harrisburg. A few from our group, plus other artists, musicians and entertainers were there. Lots of friendly people, including the Govenor, his wife, Susan, and some old friends stopped by and chatted. I learned from Mrs. Corbett that I was painting her favorite viewof the garden with the River and distant hills behind. Govenor Corbett shared with me that he loved his residence, but the traffic noise on Front Street can sometimes be a problem. Around 4 o'clock, someone came around to warn us of approaching rain showers. It was time to go.

What a delightful painting! What an honor, too...
I met Mrs. Corbett last year...she was so gracious!
