Painting at the Vinoy Hotel




Violetta and Mary Rose paint at the Vinoy Hotel


A warm return welcome greeted Violetta and Mary Rose this week at one of our favourite historic hotels, the Vinoy in St. Petersburg, Florida

Garden at Vinoy Hotel

A glorious blue sky and a harbour sparkling with boats raised our heart rate.   Easel legs were quickly released and paint squired on palettes and in no time we had begun our paintings.

 Lunch time and the aroma of delicious grilling from the kitchen called us to lunch

A quick lunch and back to the porch and easels
