OOPS members had another GREAT time at their recent "Paint Out" in downtown Jacksonville on the 16th. Another cool and breezy day with the biggest challenge being the changing light. The afternoon started overcast and then the sun came out and cast long shadows. We met several nice folks... Jim Meyers who is an artist opening a working art studio downtown, Mike and Anna Jarman who plan to join OOPS, and Gina, a sweet Korean lady who brought us all some hot green tea. Thanks Gina!
