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.

One of the nice things about this group is that it is dynamic in that people come and go.  Some folks attend regularly, others occasionally, and some visit a few times and never return.  As the composition of the group changes,so do the types of work, the media, and the subject matter.  There are always surprises!
