It would be a great joy to take a walk in this summer garden drawn by Michele

Lee's fanciful Fall landscape catches the eye with the red row of trees.

Chris's swans are floating on a dramatic waterway.

Donna's Fall to Winter Landscape matches our current weather

A small group today, only three of us (Lee is behind the camera).  But we had good discussion and lots of room to spread out!!!

We want to wish a warm welcome to Jane, who attended for the first time this week.  Her painting is  featured at the top of this blog post.  As always, there were many interesting comments and discussions during the course of this critique session.  If you have not visited our critique group, you are missing a great opportunity to exchange ideas with a uniqque group of people who are always happy to see new faces...and, new artwork.

Vintage Artists, September 12, 2018

We all did a lot of work today, in addition to discussing Carol's inspiring demo and talk.  So much helpful information to absorb.  This group is really impressive in terms of being open to new ideas, being willing to risk, and being willing to share.  It's a supportive, safe environment in which to spread our creative wings.

Special Critique presentation by guest artist Carol J. Stevens, September 10, 2018

Many, many thanks to Carol Stevens for sharing her insights and expertise with our group.  This was an inspiring and motivating experience and we were given some very practical, usable techniques and tools for evaluating our paintings as we work.  It will undoubtedly also help us better understand what to look for when we are critiquing the work of others.  In addition, Carol sparked some real excitement about painting on Yupo.  Carol's enthusiasm is contagious, and I think we all now have permission to jump in and play and experiment to our heart's content.
