Looking ahead to January

I wanted to give everyone a heads up to have time to prepare for our January meeting. We had our first official meeting in January 2012, so this upcoming meeting will be our 5th anniversary. What fun that will be to celebrate, and we plan to have a cake.  However we have one other event planned which is what I need to give everyone advance warning on.

Those of you who were members back in the beginning may remember this from our first year. Here is the quote from the blog entry of the time:
To close out our meeting we did something that was a lot of fun, and I hope we can repeat in the future. We had a painting exchange. Ten members brought in wrapped paintings [5x7] which were each assigned a number, and we then drew numbers from a basket to see whose painting we would go home with.  
Luckily no one drew their own painting, LOL. And we all got mementos of small artwork from other FCPS members. I hope we can do an exchange again like this.
Well after five years we have decided that the time to do it again is *NOW*. So for the January meeting we are asking each participant to bring in:

One small, 5x7 , FRAMED painting, WRAPPED. Once again we will have a painting exchange where you will come home with a painting by one of your fellow pastelists. 

We have such a wonderful group of artists in the FCPS. I look forward to the 5th anniversary meeting, and the painting exchange. It was lots of fun when we did it the last  time.
