|Welcome to Indian Rocks Beach, a triptych by Helen Tilston, Mary Rose Holmes and Violetta Chandler|
My art partners Mary Rose Holmes, Violetta Chandler and I have been asked by Leepa Rattner Museum, in Tarpon Springs and graciously accept the wonderful honour of
judging an art show. The Plein Air Paint Out will be held at Tarpon Springs, Florida. Finalists will be judged by us on November 11, 2012. This "Event" attracts many of North America's finest plein air painters.
Tarpon Springs, is on the Gulf Coast of Florida, fifteen miles north of Clearwater Beach.
Settled by Greeks, where the language is still widely spoken. This seaside town provides delicious Greek cuisine, OPA echoes through the narrow streets, as steaming plates are taken to tables by enthusiastic waiters. Daily specialties of the freshest, local seafood is offered. Many bakeries offer baklava and sumptuous Greek deserts.
Sponge is harvested from the waters and is available for sale
Easels will occupy the dock area, streets and bi-ways of Tarpon Springs

We are anxiously looking forward to this great honour of judging the show and meeting the many artists who will participate in this paint out.
The light is spectacular in this area of Florida.
As the sun sets over Tarpon Springs and our work is complete, we shall find our favourite restaurant and say "OPA"
