I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at our meeting this Saturday, October 27th. I can’t wait to see the watercolor demonstration by local artist, Terri Hill. If you haven’t seen her art you are in for a treat, she uses a technique of painting vibrant swirls on her paper as an under painting and then proceeds to paint over the swirls. The vibrancy of the colors shine through and her finished paintings are indeed beautiful.
