Paint out at the city market May 4

We are excited to try out this new system posting our paint out information on this KCPAPA blogspot.  Also, this blog will be a dandy way to share our photos.  Since this is kind of a test run, please try to post a photo or two of your recent work.

Jim, Martin and I had a workshop with Kim Casebeer in Topeka KS last weekend.  I will be posting photos of that this week as well.

We look forward to see you at the paint out events we have planned.
