Dear Members and Friends,
Please consider joining us this fall for an exciting new adventure into water color expression with Gayle Weisfield. Many of you have been to her web site and are just waiting for the formal official offering.
I had the pleasure of meeting Gayle in April in Washington. I am very confident she will bring us a new perspective and skill set that we can weave into our own work.
She will be using her "bogaboards" that she designed in the '70s for half sheets. They will be offered at a discount to participants of the workshop if you choose to purchase one (more on that later as we will need a head count.) You will also be able to use your own preference, for example gator board and staples. The goal is to facilitate working with wet paper yet being able to stabilize it, as it dries, keeping it flat.
I will have more to share as time goes on. Please send me questions or thoughts and also start setting aside photos you want to work with, and or challenging topics within the "landscape" category. She wants to help us paint our environment.
So for now I will sign off and say congratulations to all who are part of the current Watercolor show at Fireweed. Happy Spring--- now leading the charge into summer.
