It started out as a beautiful, sunny day as we traveled to the River Shannon where it passes through the city of Athlone. We set up our easels along the riverbanks and all morning I had the good fortune of having three gorgeous swans pose for me. I had to include them, as they begged to be in my painting.
After lunch, the skies suddenly opened up and it began to pour. We all looked like crazy people as we ran with our paintings for shelter at the nearest pub. The hot Irish Coffee was a wonderful way to end the day.
