Hello Friends,  We skipped our usual weekly meeting Thursday.  Instead we all stayed home and WORKED on our passion/our art.  Great fun.

Judy sent the image above of her palette after finishing up a challenge piece for Leslie Saeta's "30 Day Challenge".
The blogs for each member is on the right side of this screen.

Sue wanted to show her new set of fluid acrylics from Golden.  This set came with 3 fat markers that you fill from the bottle.
She is loving all of them!

Bonnie loves this color of Red  "Cadmium Red Light" and says she uses this color a lot.

Linda sent this photo of the palette she is using for a really large canvas to be included in an upcoming exhibit this summer.

We will be back on schedule this week and hope our friends are enjoying their studio time as well.

Happy Trails

Change of Artwork at Goose Creek Gallery in Bedford

Hello Friends,  Yesterday, Judy and Mary Anne changed the art work hanging at Goose Creek Gallery and Frame Shop in Bedford, Va.  We all love this gallery and all the work they do.

Their Art Walk/Stroll is on the 2nd Friday in every month so it is this Friday, tomorrow, the 13th.

It is always a great time to visit and see the new works of art.

Hope to see you there.

First Meeting of 2017 - for Workshop Plans

Hello Good Friends,  We hope 2017 is treating you well thus far.  We don't have any complaints thus far.
We had a pleasant pre-snow meeting this morning.  I saw trucks on I81 with signs saying "PRE TREATMENT IN PROGRESS".  VDOT is on the defensive this time.  And since people in this area haven't learned to drive in bad weather, GOOD on you VDOT.

We are making plans and checking systems for workshops coming up later this year.  And we know they will be fun because we are well prepared.

We will be letting you in on the fun and festivities and you can get the info first, if you sign up for our NEWSLETTERS.
It is very easy and quick to sign up.  You need to click on the post title up top so you can see our blog in your browser.  Then just click on the sign up form for the newsletter.

We are SO uptown !!

So glad you stop in to read our blog and if you haven't signed up yet, you can get our blog posts in your inbox every week.
That sign up is up top too.
