Paint out Demo-er!

The date for paint outs are getting finalized, and I am super happy to tell you that I will be one of the demonstrators at this year's Harvey Dunn Paint out, in DeSmet SD this August.

This is a great painting adventure, the people organizing it go thru a LOT of work to make it nice for the artists; a nice venue to show and sell on Sunday, lots of water and fruit during the event, a fun gathering on one evening, and plenty of things to keep a painter busy!    Its been one of my favs!

So this year I'll get the added fun of sharing my love of pastels with anyone who'll come to the shelter area at 12:30.   

Last you heard from me, I was getting ready for a workshop in Mitchell.   It was a great success, 8 people joined the class and it was fun hearing some 'oh!  that's how that's done!'   Of course, as usual, I got so involved I didn't take   Yeah, yea me.   But the store where I held the class did, and were real great about the whole thing.   Thanks Crafty Fox!  

On another note, I have just gotten in several new frame mouldings!   I am now carrying several in-house styles, so get those projects you've had sitting around, waiting for 'some time', get them done now and display your artwork and photos!
