We spent the morning playing with paints and then Lunch in the courtyard
Banana on top of the fish and it was delicious. Actually everything I ate in New Orleans except the oysters were delicious. I did not know that New Orleans was known for it’s food. but, I know it now.
Back to paint in the afternoon and then
Dinner was at Antoines – open since 1840 fine French-Creole dining & birthplace of Oysters Rockefeller. We also were in a private dining room. We got to sample all the appetizers on the menu.
desert was Baked Alaska which was flambéed at the table. Coffee was then added to the flaming alcohol and served in the cups below. P.S. I could not taste any coffee!!
Then a few of us went to the Hotel bar to listen to Jazz Music.
It was my birthday on the 14th which was the first day of the event. What a way to spend it. . . . . . playing with paint and mediums!!!
All the supplies we used were stretched along both walls of the room!
This was the box full of panels we needed to complete. There was also some canvas in the box.
A paint pouring that I did. Different than the way I had done it before (so much easier)We had a fabulous lunch in the courtyard of the hotel and then wine and cheese at 3 pm in the afternoon.
Dinner was in a private dining room at Cafe Gallery at Loew’s Hotel
