November meeting

It was a wonderful Saturday morning to get together with our fellow pastelists, and to hear President Cindy Pierson talk about things that have been going on, and things upcoming (stay tuned to this blog for some exciting details).

We had 27 in attendance today, members and guests. After sharing news and hearing about upcoming events we took and break and then came back to see our own Kevin Arthur do a portrait demo for us.

Our founder and former President, Lyn Asselta, was Kevin's guest model, nicely color coordinated with the fabric backdrop.

Kevin worked steadily but was very open to questions from the audience as he worked. Lyn was a great model, held very steady until Kevin gave her breaks. Kevin worked on Strathmore paper using his NuPastels.

After break one.

After break two.

At the end of our allotted time.

Afterwards everyone was eager to come up and get a close-up.

Those of us who stayed for the board meeting afterwards also had an additional treat of seeing the Blue Angels getting ready to kick off the big Sea and Sky air show.

Coming up:
1) Demo and Workshop with Stan Sperlak.
2) Annual holiday pot luck brunch, with a live model to paint from
3) January 5th anniversary meeting! Cake, tips and treasures, and a very special painting exchange.
