Our newest member, and first-time attendee, Michele.
On this very chilly Wednesday morning, five of us braved the cold weather to paint together...and, eat some Christmas cookies.  And, also do a bit of chatting.  But, as you can see from the above photos, we still managed to be productive and create some lovely artwork.  A special welcome to Michele, who joined us for the first time.

Donna's painting is a bit more developed.
On this very cold morning, we had nine artists at our painting session and, I believe, 6 different media being used.  It's always fun and interesting to see what everyone is working on, how they handle it, and the final outcome...which may not be seen for several weeks!  But, the best part is that we have fun painting, and sharing that love of art with one another.
