One of my cousins is kindly letting me invite myself up to visit this weekend in St. Louis so I can paint their stunning botanic gardens. Julie and her family live near the gardens and right off Tower Grove Park, which I fell in love with last summer. I can't wait to do some more painting both places. I'll have almost three days to do a little work, see friends, and get in a little dancing in the evenings.
Conveniently, the house Julie grew up in is right around the corner from me, so I could go paint it this afternoon while listening to the Cards game on the radio. I wanted to do something nice for her, since she's letting me come crash on my schedule with not a lot of warning. (I'm hoping she doesn't read this blog...) It's neat to be able to do something a little personal for the people in my life.
