I’d like to take a minute to thank Two Coats of Paint’s April sponsors. These organizations, individuals, and companies are committed to supporting online arts writing, so be sure to show them some love. (Image above: Two Coats of Paint’s new Seattle artist pals Sharon Arnold and Ryan Molenkamp, who took me to Smarty Pants to sample some local micro brews. Many thanks to them, too. But more about Sharon and Ryan tomorrow.)
