Thank you, Linda! I'm glad you're having such a wonderful time with your group-- and I hope as many of the paintings get posted for the rest of us to see as you'all can manage.
I just got back from the airport where I picked up my daughters, who had been in New York visiting their grandparents. It's great to get them back home, and as a bonus, they bought me a beautiful book when they visited the Met-- "Childe Hassam, American Impressionist". My cup runneth over! I asked them how they knew I loved his work, and they said they didn't, but the word "impressionist" made them figure I would like it. I guess they've got me figured out.
