A Note from Marjorie Bannish, CWS President

Fortunately, for us here in Florida, we are enjoying warm spring weather, while the continental USA is getting a late snowstorm!! It’s time to get outside and enjoy these mild temperatures! Now would be a good time to try Plein Air (outside) painting/ sketching: enjoying the outdoors before it gets too hot!!!

Speaking of outdoors, we are bringing in a wonderful nature artist for our May Luncheon: Mindy Lighthipe, who has an extended resume! To get a preview of her body of art, check out this link:
Meet Botanical and Nature Artist — Mindy Lighthipe — The Art of Mindy Lighthipe.

Looking forward to seeing you at the March 10th meeting!
Plan on signing up for our May luncheon ($25/ person).
