The reception is April 13th, a Saturday, from 1 to 3pm. We hope you will pencil this in your calendar of fun things to do in April. 2nd Helpings' receptions are always a great time. And you will have first dibbs on some beautiful New art work celebrating Mother Earth.
We will remind you of this event later. In the mean time, we are hanging new works at the 'CUPS' coffee shop in Grandin Village tomorrow, Friday the first day of March, in the afternoon. Stop in for a good cup O'Joe and eye candy.

I just added Midge Ovenshire's blog to our blog roll, over there on the right side. Go check it out, its beautiful.
And on another note, our local news channel, WDBJ 7, broadcast about the SPCA's annual Art Show, which will be hanging at the Taubman Museum in downtown Roanoke, starting tomorrow night. Last year our very own Judith Lochbrunner won Best in Show and also created a beautiful collage for the poster of this year.

Hey Friends, This is the violins with a coat of Kilz on them. Judy had this fun all by herself.
We are going to meet at the same place in 2 weeks for more still life painting. I'm hoping to find some tulips to paint from. Now go take a look at the painting I'm not ashamed of. Click on the link to the right of Madd Weekly Painter.

So to our participants I want to apologize, I know you wanted to see these photos. Everyone seemed to have a great time and were happy with what they produced.
Everyone wants us to plan another workshop. A girl and her dog.
Above a girl and her niece.
Above workers building one of nests and one of the beach scene.
This lady used real sand and glass marbles and shells.
Above is Audrey's dog.
We had 3 to 4 long tables set up in a row on the stage at 2nd Helpings in Roanoke, Va.. It was the perfect size for this workshop.
Then everyone had lunch at the 2nd Helpings Cafe. Which has fabulous food ! Daily soups too. I had such a good time. Makes me wish we could have a workshop every month. All our participants want us to do another workshop soon.
We will be back soon.
