Call to Paint -- Thursday, 17 July 2014 -- 8 AM
Here I am again, thinking ahead this time. On Thursday, we will head to Essex for our second annual visit to the Essex Steam Railroad. They're still saying sunny with just 10% chance of rain for Thursday, so maybe we're finally into the summer highs.
This is the time to lay down the groundwork for your painting for the members only Essex Art Association Railroad exhibit in November/December -- always a fun event, and the exhibit is in place for a long time, including the holiday shopping season, just in case you're interested in selling your steam train masterpiece.
Again I've posted our start time as 8 AM. I have not yet managed to be there that early, so you shouldn't feel bad if you think you might be somewhat later than that. Just come when you're ready. If the weather holds, we should plan to share a byo lunch under some of their big shade trees. Or if you don't remember to bring it, there is a little place where you can get a basic sandwich and something to drink.
Last year, we were able to keep our cars nearby, instead of leaving them in the parking lot, but please remember to not park on or near to the side tracks, as they do move trains in and out of these areas.
Directions may be found here on the blog -- upper right side under "Pages". Or by going to the ESR website.
I hope to see you there.
