Wow, can you believe that we are headed into 2015 already? That means we will be celebrating the *third* anniversary of our group's official founding. Just think how far we have come in the past three years. We have hosted wonderful workshops, had great shows and wonderful plein air events. We have grown to over 50 in membership. I hope many of you will be able to be with us this coming Saturday as we ring in the new year together.
New years are always a time for new and fresh beginnings, and that includes artistically as well as personally. As we grow and change as artists we also change the ways we enjoy doing things. Somehow that item that seemed so perfect a few years ago now just seems to be gathering dust in our studios, but it may be just the item some other artist is looking for! Maybe over the years we have learned some things that help our art that we wish we had known about much earlier.
That's why our January meeting is called Tips, Tools and Trade.
Our wonderful President, Lyn Asselta, describes our meeting like this:
Each member attending the meeting is asked to bring along his/her favorite "pastel tip or pastel tool". This can be anything from a painting tip to a particular tool that you just can't live without. Even better if it involves something you've made or "repurposed" that you use in your studio or en plein air. This portion of the meeting will be sort of like a show-and-tell...but you'll have between 3-5 minutes to share your tip or idea, so please keep that in mind.
You will also have an opportunity to bring along UP TO 5 ITEMS to trade, give away or sell. If you have very large items (like easels), please leave them in your car and bring a photo of the item into the meeting. We will be doing this toward the end of the meeting.This is a great way to get off to a fresh start without any big financial outlay. Let's think of what we all want to share with our fellow pastelists to make 2015 our best year ever.
