Adventures with Basil: Artist Retreat, Part 1

Basil and I have just returned from our first ever artist retreat!

Lots of new works on progress to share, but we have to get down to business first. The chalet that we stayed at was supposed to have WIFI so we could continue to post on FB daily… alas, there were some technical difficulties so we are a little behind now.

Please check out Basil teasing one of the new pictures and please check out all that we had meant to share while we were away below:
