What made the day even more special was that early SCVWS member Jo Mary Keith joined the Paintsites group for the first time in a number of years. Welcome back Jo Mary.

Completed paintings keep trickling in for some 2014 Paintsites - periodically check old postings for recent additions.
Finally, there's still time to review and order a copy of the MixBook Photo Album presented to Jenny & Sylvia at the Annual Holiday Party.
For a look at the album, go to: http://www.mixbook.com/photo-books/interests/jenny-and-sylvia-10996563?vk=759PD8gn7A
If you'd like a copy, send Marilyn a note at email@example.com as she's worked out a group discount for us.
Most of the images shown are unfinished works and appear washed-out because of the bright sun --- but they're not really. Visit again to see the completed, scanned or re-photographed paintings in all their true glory.
