The Knapp Estate June 18

Lunch On the deck
   It was "party on the patio" when a few artists gathered beneath dueling umbrellas for a spot of lunch after the morning session of last weeks event between Donkey Creek and Austin Estuary. It started with a wee bit of overcast before doing it's typical  mid morning burn off for sunshine. After lunch we returned to creating  just a short strole down the street in the Finholm area for a 2nd afternoon session. I was solicited by a shop owner who is very interested in having artists demo/work there on Thursdays from 4-7. They would be welcomed to sell thier artwork/no commission. If you have an interest  contact me and I'll get you hooked up.
View from the shore in Cromwell
   This week (after the Gig Harbor Garden pre-tour on Sunday) you might be interested to work in our 1st garden of the season, begining with Anne and Robert Knapp's place. You will find an abundance of lovingly created spaces including, a garden, flowers, pond and no lack of birds... if you can paint that fast. Within a short distance the Cromwell waterfront is also accessible if your looking for a more vast scene . Stay tuned as your hostess, Anne, will post more info/directions/pictures  soon.
