Presidents Message

A note from the president, Wanda Boyd

Wanda BoydNovember, 2019

The Citrus Watercolor booth at the Inverness Art Festival was a fun addition to our list of activities.  We were able to market our club and our workshops while also helping the artists have much needed breaks throughout the day.  I'd like to thank those that volunteered to set up, man, and take down the booth:  thank you to Aileen Croly, Art Estrella, Audette Crain, Barbara Johnson, Bonnie Ignico, Darla Goldberg, Dori Sullivan, Jan Kuukari, Judith Callison, Kathy Smith, Kim Shields, Kristine Cranford, and Susan Strawbridge  for helping with this.  If I've left someone out, I apologize but know you were appreciated for helping.

I won't be at the November meeting due to a minor health issue, but I know Susan Strawbridge will do a fantastic job running the board and general membership meetings.  It really pains me (no pun intended) to be absent as Lynn Ferris is one of my favorite artists and workshop instructors; those of you that will see her demo are very lucky, and those of you that have signed up for her workshop are doubly blessed -- I've taken several of Lynn's workshops and have left each one with numerous new techniques, ideas and inspiration.

I hope to be back on my feet in time for the Homosassa Springs show on November 16 and 17, and encourage each of you to submit some paintings for this wonderful event.  If you've never done it before and are in the least bit hesitant about doing it, please speak to someone on the board and they'll walk you through the process.  There is also a checklist on our website that you can use for guidance.  

If you have some donations for door prizes at this year's Holiday Luncheon at Citrus Hills Golf and Country Club, please bring them to the meeting tomorrow and give them to Jan Kuukari.  A big shout-out to Jan for handling this for us.  Nancy Dias is the lady to see regarding paying for the luncheon and indicating your entree preference; I'd like to thank her for taking on this role.  Our holiday luncheon is always fun, and having Tom Jones as our demo artist makes it even better.

See you all soon!

November Press Release

Lynn Ferris, Capturing the Light

MorningLightAhh – My favorite artist, Lynn Ferris, returns as demonstrator at the November 9th meeting of the Citrus Watercolor Society (CWS). I first met Lynn at an art show in Tarpon Springs where we were both exhibiting in 2008. A part time resident of Beverly Hills, she spends the balance of the year, the summers, in Berkley Springs, West Virginia. Her expertise as a watercolorist is reinforced by being chosen as an exhibitor in the Florida Watercolor Society annual exhibition every year, except one, since 2008. Originally from New Jersey, she attended Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. Before becoming a full-time watercolorist, she worked as both a commercial and architectural illustrator. Lynn is also an instructor, teaching both classes and workshops. Ferris is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the National Watercolor Society and the Florida Watercolor Society. Her work was the subject of a feature article in Watercolor Magazine and can be seen in Watercolor Magic and the prestigious “Splash” series of books published by North Light. “A Splash of Watercolor” exhibit, the West Virginia Watercolor Society Signature Members Exhibit, the Tioga Winter Fine Arts Festival and numerous others. Her many awards include “Best of Show” in both the Florida Watercolor Society and the Tallahassee Watercolor Society annual exhibitions. She has been an award winner in the “The Artists Magazine” All Media competition, and her work is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach. You can view Lynn’s work by accessing her web site at
