Celebrate 40 for 40 at the Garrett County Arts Council 

The Garrett County Arts Council is currently celebrating 40 years by entering every customers that spends $40 or more in one of their two gallery locations will be entered into a drawing to win a gift basket of art.  The promotion runs forty days, from November 15th through December 24th.  Customers can also purchase a chance to win the basket without a sale.  In case you missed it, here is an article in Mountain Discoveries Magazine about the Arts Council.  

 My original watercolor "Thirty Two Acres", picture below, is one of the pieces included in the basket.  



My "Studio On The Go" 

I posted earlier this week on traveling light.  Here are some photos of my "studio on the go".   One of my favorite parts to this kit is the Altoids tin that I'm using to carry a small supply of paint.  I found this online, although I can't remember the original source.  A simple Google search will bring up several ways to do this if you'd like to make one for yourself.

Nothing fancy here.  A simple backpack to carry my supplies.

 It all fits in the backpack.

 An old water bottle is good for water supply.

Notice the re-purposed Altoids tin.
