En Plein Lanai


Chloe, our Bichon Frise

Painting on the lanai with our Bichon Frise, Chloe, this afternoon.

Later in the afternoon, we visited the Manatee Art Center, where they had wonderful art on exhibit, and I found out about some great classes being offered there. We met the executive director of the center, Carla Nierman, who was very friendly and helpful, filling us in on the many offerings, opportunities, and exciting events there. There’s a beautiful ceramic bamboo sculpture that you see greeting us at the center’s front entrance.
