Hello Everyone,

I just checked the weather forecast…it says 20% chance of rain on Monday, October 29th, so the painters will meet at 12:00 noon at Brewed Awakenings.  If weather allows, painters can go up Elmira or Fillmore and paint Shore Pines, or other trees in the area. -- Or whatever else you would like to capture with paint, etc.
My phone number is 541-297-6118 if you have questions.

Albert Handell (one of the world's foremost pastel artists) is having a Mentoring Program in Brookings next August. It's already half full, so if anyone in interested they'd best put down a deposit before it is posted on his website as the spots will disappear quickly. I just went to the one in Fort Bragg last month. Fantastic! You can paint side-by-side with Albert or do your own thing. Crits every morning with career building information and sometimes a demo.  To register email  or call his studio office at 505-983-8373.
