Thanks, Danielle.  I have missed this event every year (3rd time).  My teacher keeps changing the date to a time she thinks I can be here, but something comes up again.

Like the saying says:  never 2 without 3.  Now you are ok for next year.

Why put off until tomorrow  what you can do today.

I cant believe you have had to miss such an exciting event. Keep the whole month unbooked next year so you wont miss it again whatever the date. Well done getting your wonderful paintings on display. :yippee: :yippee:

All three years I missed it because I left on the opening day.  First year, the show had already been booked before I joined the art class and my ticket had already been bought.

Second year, my teacher moved it back a month when she learned that I go back to Massachusetts for the month of July.  But, I had a death in the family and had to go back a month early.

This year she planned it for May, not know I was going to be going in May for the reunion.

For some reason, I am not destined to be there!

Thanks Robin. 

Our art teacher has about six styles to choose from and she makes us put the painting into each.  I actually had a more rustic frame for the lighthouse, but decided to save it for the burning lava field painting.

Thanks, Natalie.  last year the opening reception was attended by 300 people!  The show itself is in a huge indoor courtyard open to the public on working days.

Thanks, Jennylynn.  Yup, the reunion (50th!) takes precedence over everything else.

Thanks, Sherri.  They aren't bad, but the ones by the others in my class are phenomenal!  Luckily, it's not a contest.

All of us are "elderly" with no painting experience before joining this group.
