Back Porch Painters Paint with Ilona Smithken

I bet you can guess who was the model and who was able to play photographer, that week. It was such fun! Of course, painting is even more fun. Before and or after each day, I painted that week. It was very inspiring.
Yours Truly,
The painting Jean Ehler is holding in her hand of herself
was painted by Jean Bourque. I think it really looks like her.
As you may guess, the Back Porch Painters Paint with Ilona as much as possible.
She is awesome! Ilona Royce Smithken resides in NYC and comes to Columbia, SC
twice a year. She is the star of "Painting with Ilona", an SCETV show
that ran in the 70's and 80's and had a revival airing a few years ago.

Bye, Ilona...
We all look forward to seeing you again in
Spring 2008.
Yours truly, Jean Bourque
