Review: Paint Out last Friday, Camp Singing Wind - Carol Majewski says: We posted an album on our Facebook page, here.
I’m also attaching two of the photos. The first one is our most popular picture, showing Fancy, the little golden dog, with the canvas of Susanné Rose Maestas, of Winlock. She’s wearing the jeans she painted herself.
I’m also attaching a picture of Lola Dennis, who organized the event. She’s working with Billie Washington, of Toledo, who is painting for the first time.
