The Spirit of Manitou Studio Trail is gearing up for year five of the annual Artists' Trail. To be held on July 7th and 8th weekend.
It was decided at our last congregation to pose for a group photo. Thanks to the tripod-mounted camera for this shot. Good unit.

This group of artists and artisans are a driving force, having 'harnessed the genius' of the crowd we grow a bit bigger and better each year.
Have there been growing pains? You bet.
Every year we mull over over how we can improve things.
Our brochure is getting rave reviews as one of the best around. In the next short while the website will undergo its annual over-haul. Just to give you an idea of what each artists' page on the site could look like, here is my 2011 page.
This page will have all new artwork on it and my latest fun links, for example to my shiny (relatively new) Google+ profile.
At last count we are seventeen members strong.
In my books that's a pretty vital number.
I'll keep you posted as everything fall into place.
