Poppy Field Class Oct 3rd

We had a lovely laid back class today--all ten of the students were ladies!
We had a first today-- a very heavily pregnant student! Nichola is just 5 weeks off giving birth to her 2nd baby- It sounds like Poppy will be one of the options for a name if the baby is a little girl--we will all be waiting to hear the news!
We had 3 ladies back for the second time-Jess age 14 who came to the Birch Tree class a few weeks ago and Jenny and Margret who had attended the Stormy Skies class a while ago.
I think there were a few nerves to begin with and the usual '' I wont be able to paint anything that looks any good'' from most of them--but surprise surprise-as soon as their bashing brushes hit the canvas they all settled down---getting them to put the first brush mark on the canvas was hard though!
Susan and Celia we had met a few months ago when we did a WI demo at Luston WI-both were completly convinced they wouldnt be able to paint- but within minutes they were standing back and admiring their beautiful skies and grasses waving in the breeze.
Yvonne and daughter Natalie had travelled from Wolverhampton to join us, they settled down quickly too--Suzanne came over from Telford and I cant for the life of me remember where Cynthia travelled from!
Anyway-the time flew by-when it came to painting the poppies,daisies and cornflowers in among the grasses-everyone got stuck in and in no time at all they had all finished.
The wind was blowing quite hard so we decided against going outside for the photos as there would have been bits stuck to the paint!
We are looking forward to seeing everyone again soon.

Jess is coming back to 3 more classes this year,Suzanne is back for the Summer Day next year,Susan and Celia are coming to Summer Day and the Birches next year and Cynthia is booked in to the Yesterday class in Dec.
