Happy Summer, Painters!

If people come a bit late, they can still get lunch until 1pm. The paintout is a "go" rain or shine, as there are lots of protected spots if it's raining. Directions are on their website.

July 17 Sat
Ridgetop Drive
You are all welcome to paint here on Saturday, July 17th.
We are on 5 acres. The land includes a small woods, a labyrinth, gardens, and lots of grass. We encourage a walk on the labyrinth before starting to paint, because it brings blood pressure down and calms the soul.
The house will be open. We have 5 toilets, well water, and plenty of ice.
From East Amazon you turn left on Dillard. Go up about 2 miles. Turn left on Eagles Aerie/Ridgetop. Follow the road around and down. Go to 85080 Ridgetop (there is a mailbox with a landscape painted on it). Park in the driveway (pulling to the side) or on the street. Lost, call 687-2669.
Anyone who has forgotten supplies will probably find them in my studio.
Until then
