This weekend I brought my paper tidbits and glue to Texas. I was not sure what to expect of the small town of New Braunfels, but I have to tell you… it’s VERY cool here.
Typically I start my morning with either a gym workout or a run. The best, and easiest way to stay in shape on the road is to pack your running shoes. Today I went down the hill from our condo and found a very old and beautiful cemetery. I was not the only one who was enjoying a cardio workout here… I found myself running along side of a family of deer; a buck, a doe, an adolescent male and three spotted fawns were all hurdling the grave stones. Show offs.
This morning we started the day out at the Coffee House, which sported blue and white checkered tile floors, wonderful natural lighting, a cheerful staff, and a soda fountain. This town reminds me of the New England that I grew up in, offering antiques, unique architecture, and small town charm. Yet, it has just about the same climate as Orlando. Go figure.
My host Lisa and I had our morning coffee and egg sandwiches at the local coffee shop where the staff were pleasant and accommodating. I was appreciating the old tile floors and the colorful teal walls of the interior, such character and charm.
Class started today at the New Braunfels Art League with an amazing group of 21 women! Everyone was so happy to be here. It’s a great feeling to be welcomed so wholeheartedly and with such open arms. I am also honored to say that I have repeat students this weekend from Michigan, Sedona, and Houston classes!
Today I lectured about the importance of value, shading, directional ripping and collage overall. I filled their heads with visions of apples and then everyone jumped in feet first into painting paper. It’s a wonderful feeling to have people come up to you at the end of the day and say “This was just so much FUN Elizabeth.”
Just wait until tomorrow when we start gluing…
Stay tuned for day two and more big Texas fun in this small town of New Braunfels.
