Hello Friends,  the winner is Audrey !  of the Newsletter sign up promotion/giveaway and she has already received the note cards.

A couple new photos from the members about what they have been doing in the studio this month.  Judy loves her assistant and lets him assist anytime he feels it is nap time.

Bonnie has been enjoying her time in the studio, mooooving the cows on her canvas.

Linda has enjoyed very little time in her studio this month.  But she is a dedicated artist and dabbles every free moment.

We hope you have signed up for our blogs and newsletters so you can be the first to know of new exhibits and workshops.

Have a fantastic weekend.  It is going to be springlike here in SW Virginia.

Hello Friends,  Every one of our members sent in what they have just finished painting or what they are currently working on.
Above is Mary Anne's newest that she titled "The Color of Sunset".

Linda Schaar's newest creation is titled "Side by Side".

Bonnie Mason's new creation is titled "Country Morning".

Sue Furrow's creation is titled "Traces of 2016".

Judy has been busy with several works in progress this week in the studio.  Here is a photo of what she used to create three painting starts :  a gelli plate (, stencils, acrylic paint (not pictured), Caran D'Ache water soluble crayons, and sheets of 300 lb. watercolor paper.  Next step on the paper is a coat of acrylic gel and begin painting to allow her to preserve the under painting.
I'm sure when Judy gets some of the starts done she will send them for you to see.
So glad you had time to stop in today.

Please don't forget to sign up for the FREE Valentine give away.  It is the form at the top of this post or you can visit our website, HERE.
Best of Luck, Valentine's Day is just around the corner.
