OOPS December Yo-Yo Paint Out...

Just a reminder about our December Paint Out...

However, if anyone plans to paint please share on our Facebook group page so small groups can get together when and where ever. I plan to paint in December with our dear OOPS friend and artist, Guy Jackson, who will be visiting from Texas with his Jacksonville family in December. I'll be sure to keep y'all posted. Also... We will have our annual Life Drawing class in January at the CFTA but need to confirm date.

NOVEMBER OOPS Paint Out... November 16, 2014

We realize this is short notice but Karen Crenshaw has been acting like a "Storm Chaser" locating a cotton field to paint since our original plan at the Scott Farm fell through via an early pickin.

The fields are few and far between but she has got us permission to paint at one tomorrow (Sunday, Nov. 16) if it is not picked today. She is scurrying today for a PLAN B or another field that may be better.

With all that said... our artists will need to follow our Facebook group page for the latest updates including location and directions at


WHEN: Sunday, November 16, 2014 ~ Noon until...

WHERE: A "cotton field" TBA... Follow LINK above for last minute details!

Here are some of Karen cotton paintings from Karen's recent plein air adventures...
