Forced to Leave the Building

I don't usually post photographs, but this was too good to pass up.  Our ArtVisions group was asked to show our work at the Shenandoah Club, a private club in Roanoke, VA.  We all got there with our 10 paintings each and proceeded to start hanging, when we were told we had to evacuate the building.  Apparently, there was a fire and the staff had to call the fire department.  So, we did as we were told as the fire trucks pulled in.  Now if you notice, none of us thought about our paintings at all...except for our friend, Nancy.  I have decided she is the one we all should go to in an emergency.  I'm pretty sure she was saying to herself: "I'm NOT going to lose this painting after working on it for so long!"  The rest of us were all oblivious, like school kids during a fire drill.  We spent about 1/2 hour in the parking lot taking pictures of the firemen putting out the fire, (which turned out to be towels that were smoldering and burst into flames.) I snapped this picture while the firemen worked.  The only thing I can say about our group is that we all have that "artist" mentality, which makes us quirky and fun, and most of our time together is spent laughing....and every now and then painting.....
