It was held on April 16, 2011 at the Senior Center in the El Dorado hills, 990 Lassen Ln. I really wanted to go, and had marked my calendar early this winter so as not to miss it! Imagine, getting to meet one of my absolute favorite pastel artists, and watching her do a demo!! I planed to take my sister, and take her out to lunch, and just have a fun day. Maybe she would see just why I love pastel so much! Then I had a brain-storm, and called my plein-air buddy, Carole, from Dayton, whom I met from the Wet Canvas web-site to join us! I didn't have to ask twice, she is always ready for a pastel adventure. My sister was great, and did all the driving, I bought the gas and the lunch. We found a great little spot in Placerville called "Z-Pie" which is a little restaurant that serves gourmet pot pies! We were in and out of there in no time, and just 20 minutes or so from the Demo center.
As we drove into the parking area at the Senior Center, Kim was going out the back door to her truck and we got to met her right then!!! She is so gracious, pleasant, warm, and genuine. Really a nice gal. I was so happy to see that in her, and it goes well with her artwork. She also seems to be a bit shy, but very personable, good speaker, and so polite! We sat with the Sierra pastel society members, and really enjoyed a great demo.
