It's a kooky name but it works for us. We are the Palette Princesses, a book group formed from women painters who paint at Studio UFO in Bellingham. We meet once a month to (in theory) discuss the book we've (mostly) all read the month before. In reality we talk about all sorts of things totally unrelated to the book. And we talk about the book too. We met last Friday at Eve's house. From the top are Marilyn, Donna, Helen, Susann, Pat, Eve, Valerie and Nancy.
