2017 Rock Party
Dees Dream
Golden MO

Hello!  It's time to be thinking about joining together to hunt for rocks and paint rocks again!  Yay!  The dates are June 9 - 10, 2017, same place, same times! 

We will meet at Dees' Dream, Golden, Missouri around 7 am and meet Lin Wellford in Green Forest, Arkansas, probably at the square like we did last year!  We will follow Lin in a caravan to Jasper, Arkansas to one of her favorite 'rock pickin' places to gather rocks!  After about 2 hours of picking rocks, we will gather at Jasper's Ozark CafĂ© for a light lunch, each painter choosing their own meal and it will be Dutch treat!  When we have finished with our lunch, we will follow Lin and T.Joe and me back to Dees' Dream and begin painting and visiting!

We do ask that each person bring finger snacks to share and bottled water and/or juice or soda to enjoy while we are painting.  On Saturday, T.Joe (Thomas Joseph Dees) and I will provide grilled burgers and dogs for lunch.

We ask that each Rock Painter donate $10 each for the event which will help with lunch on Saturday as well as paints and brushes to be used both days. 

If you click on the labels on this site, you can find places to stay in this area if you want to be here overnight.  We will have breakfast EARLY but if you want to participate, please bring something to contribute for that. 

We will meet Friday morning here at 7 am and we will begin Saturday morning around 8 am.  Breakfast will be much earlier so we will be ready to visit and paint.

Check back here in case I have added more details!  Hope to see you here!  If you want to invite someone to join us, just let us know so we can be prepared!  Thanks!









Rockin' on!

Rock Painting Get Together 2016

Hello Rock Painting World!  We are anticipating another great Rock Painting Party in June 2016!  Our theme this year will be Rockin' Flower Power!  June 10 - 11, 2016!  Amazing that this will be our 17th year to hold our Dees' Dream Rock Painters Get Together! 

We will once again have T.Joe's Welding Shop as our Studio and with added space in his new concrete floor lean-to that we added this past fall. We still have plenty of tables and will borrow chairs from our Emerald Beach Club House, unless we happen to accumulate enough chairs of our own between now and then!

We are experiencing snow on the ground, which is melting very slowly but hopefully, all this will be behind us and we will have a nice spring with lots of flowers to enjoy as well as nice warm weather too.

We are looking forward to visiting with our rock painting friends again, painting more rocks, and meeting new rock painters as well!  We already have a few newbies interested! 

For more information, feel free to pull up previous rock parties using the labels listed or contact us via email. Additional information is listed under the past rock parties and we follow almost the same agenda  each year! You can email me at wandra_ann@yahoo.com or wandraann@outlook.com.  Also, I am on Facebook under Wandra Dees.  You can also post a note here on my blog. (wondersbywandra.blogspot.com)  I hope to be able to post more information here in the following months before the rock party in June!

Rockin' On!
Wandra and T.Joe Dees
