Jeff Klinker demo!

The garage sale is successfully behind us and we're looking forward to our program with Jeff Klinker tonight! You can read about him here!
I'm really excited about our Tuesday program this month. I'm sure this is a familiar name to most of you, Jeff Klinker. He will be demonstrating a "plein aire" painting session for us outside of TAF (weather permitting).
Here is a little bit about Jeff:
He was raised in a large family on a farm. He studied life drawing and design for a short time at Purdue. With the exception of a few workshops from prominent painters such as John Michael Carter, CW Mundy and Dan Woodson, he considers himself being self-taught. He has been painting for 40 years, however, it was not until the year 2000 that he discovered the art of plein aire at the annual TC Steele Great Outdoor Art Contest. With a love for nature, plein aire was the perfect combination. Now with an impressionistic style and a member of the IPAPA organization, He paints at some of the most scenic areas in the state.
Here is a note from Verna about our yard sale on Saturday.
Thanks to everyone that helped make it a success.
The garage/yard sale May 16 at Lanni's brought in $385.00
Huge thanks to Lanni for letting many sale items take over her home for several months and organizing publicity and just about everything else.
Also thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who helped set up on Thursday and who helped customers on Saturday and 'took down' the leftovers after. Also to those who trucked furniture, brought folding tables, and whoever I have forgotten to mention.
Verna R.
