information, or other art events to post in this newsletter, please send it to

Hello Everyone,

On Monday, September 10th we will paint 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Kathleen Bailey’s place.  Those who would like to can also go nearby to paint at Carol Adam’s yard (limited parking).  Critique will be held at Kathleen’s house.
Directions to Kathleen’s from Bandon: Take 42S toward Coquille from Hwy 101 near Ray’s Food Place .  Go east a little over a mile and turn left onto Prosper Jct. Road .  Continue a short way on Prosper Jct. Rd until the road forks…veer to the right onto Tom Smith Road .  Her place is the 2nd driveway on the left, then a quick right into the circle (around the house) driveway.
I will be working that day.  Hope you can make it, and enjoy the painting. 

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.

******Prosperous Heart (Julie Cameron) workshop taught by Gina Allison

In September, for twelve weeks we will be meeting Monday evenings to study and follow her newest book Prosperous Heart by Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way. $120 for 12 weekly sessions. 
The tools of The Prosperous Heart help people to embrace the life that they actually have, where they often find that they already have “enough.”
In this difficult day and time, what can people do to find prosperity? There are two very practical tools used by my students. The first one is Morning Pages, where they track their dreams, their disappointments, dreams and desires. The second tool is Counting, where they record money in and money out. We often find we are spending money in ways that do not serve us. As we work with these two consciousness-raising tools, we find ourselves spending along the lines of our true values. As a result, we feel we have “more.”
