Floating flowers and Grandma's Kleenex

It was a sunny and windy April evening out on the Hergert Farm. The delicious aroma of vegetable soup and bread hung in the air. The last of the evening light danced in the sky as the guests arrived. After a long week of work, bowls and wine glasses were filled and the painting began!  

These ladies painted "Floating Flowers" and each integrated their own style into their piece (intentionally or not!). I just love how that happens.

Look how hard they are working... they must be used to working together! Painting and team-building definitely go hand-in-hand. We had some good laughs too. More about that after this pic.

So here's what happened... 

Both of my grandma's graciously donated years worth of aprons to my painting business. So, I ended up with all these vintage aprons- some of which, I actually remember my Grandma wearing when I was little. Anyway, as I'm explaining the sentimental significance of the aprons, somebody reaches in her pocket and pulls out.... Grandma's Kleenex! It must have been in there a while because it was pretty vintage looking too.

We all had a good laugh. This picture was taken right after the Kleenex incident.

Check out these beautiful creations!
