For the afternoon, we hopped aboard the shuttle and went to one of my very favorite spots to paint, Court of the Patriarchs. There were some good shadows on the rocks, but since it was warm, we headed down to the Virgin River and into the shade of the cottonwoods.
Here's a little video I shot while exploring for a painting spot -

Two painting sessions a day plus exploration up the river tired us out. I went back to the house to do laundry - we'd been on the road since before the Las Vegas Plein Air Convention & Expo - and shower. This evening, folks went out for dinner in small groups. (I know, these sound like rather quotidian details, but they give you an idea of how the retreat works.)
Tomorrow, we have a very special trip planned - a tour of Maynard Dixon's home and studio in Mt Carmel plus painting on the property.
