This will work in a similar way to the photographic scavenger hunt, the 26 things list, on the web at sh1ft.org/26things/ .

The Monthly meeting of the Gateway Pastel Artists was tonight. Spring isn't even here and there are already three (3) plein air events to plan on attending, a possible workshop to get in on, and if at all possible a convention to truck out to. Hey, if I can come up with $1000 I'll sleep in my truck for the chance to get to the Pastel Society convention. Personally I think it should be held in a more central location like ...uh... St. Louis? H*ll I'd settle for western Kansas. It would give so... read moreTue, February 13, 2007 - 4:28 AM permalink - 0 comments
