Apologies to everyone for the delay in making recent updates to our website and publishing posts. I have had several family matters to attend (thank you to all my Guild friends for your kind words!). I am gradually getting “back in the saddle” so send me your latest paintings to post in our Member Gallery, volunteer to be a Featured Artist, suggest a topic, send me a link to a website tutorial that you have found helpful, or other!
While I am on the subject of apologies, we inadvertently failed to include member Joy Levick Cross from our January recognition of artists who paid tribute to Eloise Gardiner Giles. Be sure to recognize her generosity when you see her next.

Two Web Workshops by Strathmore
Strathmore Artists Papers continues its promotion of water media in 2020 with 2 new free workshops presented across the web. I, personally, have taken several of these workshop and found them to be quite helpful. You can read about the 2 workshops scheduled for 2020, how the workshops operate, how to enroll, etc. at this site.
Workshop 1, How to Draw Portraits by Justin Mass is set to start on May 4. While this is maybe a bit outside our main focus of water media, drawing is a key part of our art. Our CVWG held our own workshop in 2019 with member Bill Snow also focused on drawing.
Shows and Exhibits of Interest
Firnew Farms Artist’s Circle has announced several new shows by their artists in our area.
