Hi everyone

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/23-Jun-2004/27068-seaside2.jpg

You’re invited to this weekend’s (June 26/04) Weekend Drawing Event!

I’ll be posting various photos from around the harbour & beach in Scarborough - the North Yorkshire holiday town where I live.

You can create your “masterpiece” anytime during the weekend. You have 1/2 hour to choose a photo, and two hours to create your original work of art -- using whatever media you like. You can then post a new thread in the All Media Art Events section - with “WDE” and “June 26” or “6/26” in the title. Don’t worry if you don’t finish your painting in that timeframe – just post what you’ve accomplished so far … you can always update your thread later.

The images will be posted in the All Media Art Events section of the Town Center on Saturday, June 26, 2004 – at the following times:

New York-Sat 4pm, Paris-Sat 10pm, Anchorage-Sat 12pm, Amsterdam-Sat 10pm, New Orleans-Sat 3pm, Vancouver-Sat 1pm, Manila-Sun 4pm, London-Sat 9pm, Halifax-Sat 5 pm, Sydney- Sun 6am, Toronto- Sat 4pm, US Mountain time-Sat 2pm, Helsinki-11pm

Looking forward to hosting !

Nina

It will be really nice to have some photos of England to paint for a WDE - a bit more familiar country, although I have to admit I've never been to Scarborough.

Nina -- sounds interesting! It will be nice to see pictures from England. I really want to participate, but it will have to be during next week, as I am going away this weekend -- thanks again for trading weekends with me.

Signed - another Joy

Hi Nina, wonderful invitation and will look forward to seeing the images you have chosen. We have friends in Chemsford who we plan to visit hopefully next year. They will be coming again to see us in a couple months this will be their second trip. We can't wait to see them!
See you Saturday :D

Pleased that you are all thinking of joining in, doesn't have to be Saturday - I know 'cos I'm always late with my entries. :D

Sometimes I intend to join & then never seem to get the time, but keep the images just in case ..... :angel:

Turkey - nah !

Think of

candy floss
ice cream cornets

Nina - I can't wait. Of course I probably will be late again.

I would love to see your town. It will be nice to see England other than on BBC America! :rolleyes: I'm starting to think everyone is a detective - or wants to be, lol! I'll order the fish & chips if anyone wants to meet me here in New England!

Welcome artistjrb - I'm sure that you will enjoy WetCanvas & the projects I certainly have been inspired to try many new subjects since I joined & made a lot of cyber friends :)

Nicole - do you know there are oodles of calories in fish & chips ? :evil:

Thanks for the lovely invitation, and I hope all the guests enjoy the WDE tomorrow. I will try to join sometime this next week.

I never did start on last week's crocuses because I was at the art vendors' trade fair in Boone on Saturday, and have been packing and finishing up around here all week. Tomorrow I'll be in the middle (or, possibly, the end?) of moving. But I would love to paint from a great seaside reference photo, so maybe, if we finish the move tomorrow, I can try to get a start on Sunday.

Fish 'n' chips sounds great to me, too. Or, turkey....

Sounds like it's the ideal place to hang out for awhile, Nina. But I probably won't be able to join y'all until Sunday. But, join I will as soon as possible.

I hope I just may get to join you again this weekend. I'm afraid my husband Rob's been terribly ill. (In hospital for 5 weeks) and he's still not out of the woods yet but we're keeping our fingers crossed and as the consultant said *being quietly optimistic*. So it's been a busy and fraught time. However, see you all later, I hope.
