The area we have been sailing this past week is as pretty as a picture.
The views are stunning…
Well-deserving of a portrait.
So, on Wednesday afternoon we pulled out the brushes, paints and easels we packed, in preparation for our planned painting party.
We usually plan a craft or two when we vacation together and as we were planning this houseboat vacation Lana suggested we bring supplies for everyone to paint a memory of this houseboat experience. So, we each gathered the plethora of supplies we have acquired as a result of our kids’ membership in mural club, and planned an afternoon painting party on Norris Lake.
Tyler, still chasing down fish, opted not to participate,
But everyone else gathered on the top deck to paint.
The scenery inspired creativity.
Some opted to paint the views from the upper deck of the houseboat,
While others chose to paint a particular favorite memory from this vacation.
It was fun to watch everyone work and see their personal artistic styles unfold on the canvas before them.
Here are some of the finished works of art:
What a perfect way to memorialize a wonderful week with friends!
