According to Judy Reid who keeps Charles Reid organized and the class too. Judy also arranged the flowers, assigns seats, sells paintings coordinates book signings and buys Charles a new baseball cap without which I think he could not paint.
The kindergarten teacher may have retired but she still is herding her class. A funny lovely lady Judy tells a good version of the Chuck and Judy show as she bills them which has been going on since 1961 when they met at U of Vermont.

Been working on a new painting most of the day. Did I say Tahred. On melt down trying to get an entry together for the SC Watermedia National Show. Entries due next Friday. 🙀

Did five sketches of geese at Browns Feed and Seed. I wandered across them when I was looking for there chickens that are usually at Browns. just as much fun to draw geese as chickens and they don’t run around as much. Two are still in the car. Not the geese. Sketches!! 😂
Paintings done with Charles Reid colors. New Palette. The other one was getting old and rusty with enamel popping off.
