Welcome Friends –
All that glitters isn’t gold but that doesn’t matter when your letters sparkle! From Fine Tec to Peral Ex to Schmincke to Twinkling H2O’s it’s always fun to put a little bling in your letters. This is exactly what Mother Nature is in the works to do, put bling out in our landscape; of course hers is in the form of Johnny jump ups, Iris, Poppies, Pansy’s, and let us not forget our state flower….Bluebonnet’s! Painting this stunning landscape for all the world to see. This is our opportunity to paint along side her and exhibit at the Artist Showplace. We have our fist exhibit coming up in April (entries have to be in to Margaret within the next week). The hang date is March 31!
A little bunny told me there is something new coming that will be seen for the first time at this meeting…Hmmm, wonder what that could be. She also said something about the logo on the directory this year. Pesky little critter wouldn’t give me all the details so you better just show up and see what it’s all about.
Kathy Setina is our program leader this month on Drawing for Calligraphers. She was an art teacher and extremely accomplished watercolor artist. If anyone can teach us how to draw it’s Kathy. Bring your pencils and paper and get ready to throw some graphite down!
Visogoth Versals (I just like saying Visogoth!) presented by none other than Risa Gettler is coming up on April 29 and 30th. Her work is stunning and this is an opportunity to learn from the best in the art realm. Seek out Sherry to find out if there are any seats still available.
Another tickler for you…..Have you every heard of Treewhispers? What about Pam Paulshrud? Take a look at this link: https://treewhispers.com
There is something in the works; maybe a collaboration of sorts with a fellow guild. Much more to come. I’ll be giving more info at the meeting. Also, be on the look out for additional information in upcoming newsletters. I’m banking on this to be really fun and potentially a start of something new (fingers crossed).
The Executive positions of Vice President and Treasurer are on the ballot this year. If you are interested in either position please seek our Nominating Chair, Jeri Wright, or anyone on her team; June Baty, Anita Hofmiester, Brenda Burns
