Elizabeth gives us our instructions in marriage vow increments; short little phrases so we don't forget any parts. She demonstrates one element, sky for example, then sends us to our paintings to give it a shot. Skies left to dry, we are back up to her table to watch Elizabeth paint the next small part, this time rocks. And so we move through the painting. How can something so apparently simple be so exciting? But I am not fooled. As pleased as I am with my first efforts, I can sure see the loveliness coming from a more experienced hand.
