What: November general meeting
When: Saturday, Nov. 1, 10 AM to 12 noon
Where: Cultural Center of Ponte Vedra Beach
Yup, it's almost November! Here we are heading into a busy holiday season, but hope you will still all have time to join us next week for a fabulous meeting.
We will be hosting award-winning Georgia artist Donna Biggee,* who will do a still life demo for us. Donna's work has most recently been showcased in Pastel Journal. Don't miss the opportunity to watch her work! Donna does beautiful work in both pastels and oils.
In addition we hope to have nominations all lined up for our upcoming elections in January. If you have not already volunteered for a position or a committee please thing about doing so now. This is YOUR society so we need your help to keep us vibrant, alive and active.
I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday next week, and look forward to Donna's demo also.

After lunch we had a "show and tell" where everyone displayed their works of the morning, in various stages of completion. These photos, of course, don't begin to do the artwork justice, as they were taken at wonky angles and in bad lighting. But we hope it will give you some idea what the members of the FCPS were up to this morning.
