"Blue Jay Posing" by Linda Wells

Each artist will begin a painting and paint for 10 minutes. A bell will ring and each painting will be passed to the next artist who will work on it another 10 minutes until the bell rings again. This continues until the artist who started the painting gets it back for a final 10 minutes to add the finishing touches. The 5 resulting masterpieces will be signed by all 5 artists and auctioned off to the highest bidder in support of our scholarship fund. Don't forget to bring your checkbooks!
