Well this week was Spring Break.  With only 4 of us there we had a lot of room to spread out.

This is one of Vanita's pieces that she was making for a customer from the St. Lukes show she did a couple of weeks ago.  She sold 18 out of 35 pieces.  Great Job!!









This week I thought I would talk about getting organized.
Many of you have a hard time getting out the door on Thursdays (myself included) and of course everything that can go wrong does.
Some of us have tried many different things to make it easier.  

But here's what works for me.  

Shirley and I both, as some of you have seen have these rolling carts we got from www.jerrysartarama.com  I have used this for over a year now and I wouldn't go to paint without it.  I love it.  I've teased her about putting cup holders on her SUV.








This is what Sally uses for her watercolor "stuff"
I think what is most important is that you find something to put EVERYTHING in and easy to get in and out of the car.   If you get organized, you'll have a better chance of getting out the door to paint with us on Thursdays.  







I try to take it a step further and make sure I've got everything in my cart the night before.  So all I have to do is get grab it and stick it in the car.  Of course there have been times it slips up on me and I forget to get it all together the night before.  Especially when I walked out the door, got to our painting place and realized I left my cart and my paintings sitting at the front door of my house. So I had to turn around and go back and get them.  How stupid.  Oh well.  I know I'm not alone. Huh? 

So, find something with wheels on it that will hold all your "stuff" and come paint with us.
Hopefully everyone will be back next week.

Don't forget to turn in your forms for the Art Show & Competition on April 4th if you haven't already.  The deadline is March 31st.
By for now!
