I wanted to post the invitation to the Twins and Friends show on the 31st in Alabama. You see my painting which is an oil on canvas, my sister Carole's is an encaustic (pigments with beeswax) painting, and the peace bracelet made by Chicago-based artist Jean Basse. I own this bracelet and wear it all the time - the peace sign is rough silver attached to brown leather. She makes it with black leather, too. Jean also works with pearls and other great semi-precious gems. I can hardly wait 'til her site is done so that you could see what she does and order straight thru her site. James Dean will also be showing his Pete the Cat stuff. Great! Check it out. Anything can be purchased and shipped to you! Simply contact Carole or Leslie at Carole Foret Studio at 256.232.2521.
Wow, what a great response to my last newsletter which has helped to fill my art camps next month! Here's the current status:

We had a gorgeous day to paint outside at the Hudson, Wisconsin Boat Marina. Thanks to Joanie Delamater for having us all out to paint and enjoy a most delicious spread of food that she provided for us! Thanks, Joanie!!! We battled our acrylic paint drying so fast, but the painting ladies did fabulous work. Check out the pictures! Fun time, Gay, Joanie, Julia and Molly!
Next week, we will be in beautiful Stillwater at Heidi's newly renovated barn (beautiful home) on a lake with a pool and cute pool house, too. So much to paint! Thanks to you ladies for your generosity in having us invade your spaces with easels, paints, palettes and fun, crazy women!
Looking forward...! :))))))
Gay, frustrated with her painting... (It turned out kind of surreal- beautiful!)
