Fall brings about some beautiful colors, textures, and images to inspire our creativity and create memories to share.
Speaking of creativity, the SDP 50th Anniversary Convention in Las Vegas has just come to an end with what looks like a fantastic turn-out. Special thanks to Sandy McTeir for all the photos and videos she posted. The New England Traditions show or NET is approaching soon, running from October 4 through October 9 in Marlborough, Massachusetts. The OKC Painting Palooza in Midwest City, Oklahoma is not long after from October 22 to October 29.

Your participation and attendance are appreciated by all who work so hard to bring them to you.
