President’s Message – Dec 2017

Happy Holidays...OMG already?

Seems like we just finished summer and now we are getting ready for our December Pot Luck! My Mother, in her 90’s, used to say, “The older I get, the faster the years go by...and the slower the days!” Well, we must not be ‘old’ yet because our days are flying by!

We have so much to be grateful for: our joy in making art, sharing art, learning more about watercolor, sketching, and how to cut our own mats. Which brings me to a new opportunity for you to learn more. I’m working with Ian Cooke, President of Desert Art Center (and our own member too), to offer a one-day workshop on how to do your own framing and matting, which means how to cut your own mats, including double mats and how to cut your own plexiglass, plus where to buy frames. This will be in January. More info to follow. There will be a small cost, but very much worth the price.

With all the activities during December, remember to paint, since our Annual Show is about 8 weeks from now!

Thank you to all our volunteers...you are fabulous and so very much appreciated!

Keep your brushes flying. Diane Moore, President
