Saturday in the Park with the Masters

The "Ninth Annual Saturday in the Park with the Masters" was so much fun and inspiring! It was held at the beautiful campus of the Maranatha High School in Pasadena. The weather was beautiful and there were fifteen artists demonstrating their unique painting styles portraying the landscape or painting one of the models posing there.

  1. Oh Kathleen, How fun! I'm so disappointed that I didn't get to go to this! I've heard it's a wonderful event but I already had something else planned. Thank you for sharing so many photos of the artists and their paintings. I will definitely try to go next year! Did you paint or just observe?

    1. Well, there's next year! No, I didn't take any painting supplies and couldn't stay as long as I would have wanted because I had to make something to take to a dinner we were invited to that evening

      I had never gone to this event before but would love to go next year too! The setting was beautiful1 I want to go back just to take photos!

  2. What a fabulous collection of great watercolor artists!!! It must have been such a fabulous day! Thank you for your post, Kittie.

    1. It was really fun! I knew a few of the artists there but got to meet a few I had known about and admired their work!
      Thanks for commenting, Kathryn!
