    The tidelands was beautiful but I should have walked up the hill (potofino) to paint instead of down. The traffic was a bit distracting for me.

    Glad you had a good morning. I see wonderful paintings! The flu took me down. Hope to be back next week.

    Views were very nice, but I couldn't find you. I used my car and iPhone GPS so I wouldn't get lost. I arrived on time but didn't see anyone at the Carmel Valley Road park & ride. Thought I was in the wrong place, then drove along the beach and waited 25 minutes for surfers to change in order to park on the road. I then walked in the wrong direction. Totally my fault, I tried, next time will do better.

    I have the lens cover for a camera dropped near Irena , Ron's???
    Do anyone have advice for how to deal with canvas boards just a tiny bit too large for the storage section of the paintbox?
    Are there brands which are more precise?
    Frederix have a somewhat flimsy laser cut board without folded corners but does it come 11x 14 ?
    Do I file edges ?

      Ampersand geessobord is precise but costs a little more. They are great but a different tooth than canvas board. You should try them.

      BTW, that IS my lens cap. Keep it in your kit and I'll pick it up at a future meetup.
