I was fortunate enough to get to visit the Grebitus Tahoe house again this year for an artist painting retreat. A handful of artists and their families came together on the shores of Homewood Tahoe to paint, hang, and enjoy God's beautiful creation.
Now that I've been painting in Tahoe for a few years I have a few favorite spots. One of the best locations (in my opinion) is Sand Harbor, NV. Its a gorgeous beach with water like emeralds and boulders that dwarf humans. We had to get there early because it's such a popular spot in the summer.
One day artist, Patris, and I went to the Impressionist Show at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno. It was an amazing collection of impressionist paintings from numerous painting colonies throughout the US. It was so inspiring to view the work and use all that visual inflow as we worked on our own paintings later that day. We also had fun exploring the vibrant food and art scene of Reno.
It was a great week of painting, art talking, eating family style dinners with the other folks and most importantly - enjoying the gorgeous lake! Thanks again Kate Grebitus for letting a bunch of artists invade your house and for facilitating an amazing artist reprieve.
