Hi Tarryl. I did a little 6x8" at Boscobel very early, in the rain, next to Keith doing his humongous painting. LOL.... Was lots of fun. I had an umbrella. :))) I was done by 11 and turned in my painting around noon. There were only a few paintings in at that point. I didn't stick around long because I had to get home.
Do you want to paint at Vanderbilt sometime soon? You could drive right down to the river and I can help you with your gear.
Tarryl, I remember well The Artist On Location paint outs at Garrison Landing. I love the scenery of that location. I had been a member their for about ten years before moving to Florida. The seasonal changes here are much more subtle.
I had the same thing and went for the same treatment on the disk. Honestly Massage helped the most. And I am still using that a year later. It really relieves the pain. I also got Lyme injections they are a series of 3 injections that work as a vaccine. So far so good.
