Day Five, Submission Art Day and meeting up with Joe, Sue & Gregg
Today was the day we turned in our plein air art to the Columbia Art Gallery. We were scheduled to paint in Downtown Hood River, but I didn't see anyone painting on the streets. I finally ran into Joe Howard and he told me he was meeting up with Gregg Caudell at the Woman's Forum Overlook in Corbett. I decided to see what the weather was there. When I arrived I could see that it would be a no-go for painting..totally socked-in. Gregg and Joe decided to skip the painting also and so we all stood in the parking lot, discussing the Group of Seven. Gregg told us about his new extra-length paint brushes that he learned about from Simon Kogan. (There is a short slide show up about the final day...go have a look at it HERE).
