When: Saturday, January 4, 2014, 10 AM to 12 noon

Wow folks. Here we are headed into 2014. Come join us as we celebrate our 2nd birthday! Our meeting this Saturday will be at the St. Augustine Southeast Branch Library which is easily accessible at the intersection of Route 1 (Dixie Highway) and 206 - exit 305 off I-95 if that is the route you take.
The meeting should be a fun and though-provoking one, with a round-table discussion about the topic:
Art: "Painting What you Love vs. Painting What Sells"
We'll be having a lively discussion on this topic! Please bring along a painting that you thought would sell but hasn't, or one that you really love but that you feel hasn't gotten the attention you thought it deserved.
Speaking of selling our work, we just took down our show at Gallery 26 in Melrose yesterday. Our show was a great success. The women from the gallery said it was the first pastel show they had ever put on, and it got rave reviews from customers, some of whom said it was the best show the gallery had ever had. The women from the gallery all want to take pastel lessons now.
And we sold *five paintings* which they told me was the most paintings they had ever sold from a single show, so great work FCPS. Special congratulations go to our selling artists: Perry Russell, Lisa Fiore, Linda Hart Green, and Steve Johnson - who sold TWO paintings.
