Hello Everyone,
This Monday, August 27th, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., we will be painting at the Myrtle Tree Motel in Myrtle Point.  As you are going through Myrtle Point toward Roseburg, the motel is on the right hand side a couple of short blocks after the second traffic light.  They have trees, a good view, and picnic tables.  Bring your lunch, or buy it in Myrtle Point...come join us and have fun. 
On Monday, September 3rd--NO Paintout due to the Labor Day Holiday.
Our theme this summer is "Iconic Trees of the South Coast".  So if you have a favorite tree or two that you think we would like to set up and paint, please let me know.  We will have a show with our trees later on.
My phone number 541-297-6118.
