MacGrins aka Kelley MacDonald - HHG Gang Member

The Hilton Head Gang is a group of notorious artists who attended Karin Jurick's workshop on Hilton Head Island.  I will feature one member of the group each week until they are all accounted for...
Kelley “MacGrins” MacDonald is the next notorious member to be sought.  You may think her smiling face is harmless...until you see your smiling mug on one of her blogs.  She waltzes in to a room, a beach or an event, smiling and acting all “I’m your friend” and then shoots at will.  She doesn’t leave until she has captured every available smile.  When ready leave the island...Suspiciously...her little red sports car was missing...she left Hilton Head in a newly acquired Jag shouting “Girls Just Wanna Paint!”  She drove up the coast stopping along the way to visit accomplices.  She has hideouts everywhere.  Beware the smile...
To find out more about MacGrins check out her blog:

Maria Hock took the photograph for Kelley's mug.  And I have to give her a LOT of credit because she managed to keep Kelley from smiling!  I tried my best, but to no avail.  She just laughed and could not stop.  What to do?  Call in the big guns ...... Maria came to the rescue.  Thanks, Maria!
(Kelley, don't laugh when you see this!)
