It's a long read, but worth your time. Eric says, "I hear from so many people who want to ramp up their art careers fast after they retire from their lifelong career. Many ask if there is time. My answer is that you should assume you have unlimited amounts of time. The key is being engaged mentally, socially, and physically. Don’t place limits on yourself about how much time you have left. Assume you have a lot, because you can hold a paintbrush till your last breath."

November 11: historic Fernland Park, located at 780 Clepper Street, Montgomery, TX . This park features historic log cabins, a bell tower and fields (hopefully with bales of hay!) The library next door has a beautiful garden and pond to paint, too. Meet in the parking lot just off the street and in front of the log cabins. Bring water and a bag lunch if you like, restaurants are scarce in this area. The library is open and has restroom facilities.
No instruction and no fee, just bring your gear. Feel free to paint or sketch in the medium of your choice—oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, charcoal, etc. Painting from 9:00 AM to noonish, come and go as you please.
For information on each month’s event and advice on what to bring, contact Kathy Fediw at 281-687-6966 or email Kathy.Fediw@Comcast.net

November 4 Meeting and Program 9:00 - 12:00. The always fun paint-around highlights the November meeting. If you have never attended a paint-around, it's a don't be nervous, grab your skills, and paint over the work of someone else. Here's a link to a previous paint-around, all for laughs. We should be finished around noon. Plan to stay afterwards and have lunch at a restaurant nearby and visit if your plans permit.
