SLWS’s 2015 Fall Retreat Was a Success

We have received very favorable feedback from our members who attended the 2015 Fall Retreat, Oct 27 – 29, at the Toddhall Conference Center in Columbia, IL .

Peggy Michalski wrote, “Despite the blustery/rainy start we were happy with our warm painting space, our sleeping arrangements, and the food!  Toward the end the sun happily returned.”

We wanted to share the following photos that were sent in of some of the attendees hiking in the woods and some of the artwork that was created at the retreat.  It appears that the surroundings provided inspiration and a relaxing atmosphere.
