The Maine Event 2015

If you missed, I'm sure you are regretting it. This was the best and most fun year yet. Here are some photos of the action.

These first 12 were taken by Elaine, a first time attender from New Brunswick, Canada. She was ushered into the "art' scene by Lois and Sandra! Can't wait to see her again next year.
