A Note from Marjorie Bannish, CWS President

Welcome to 2023 !! I wish you a healthy and peaceful New Year.
If you have had a holiday season filled too full of _ (fill in the blank), then you will welcome a quiet January, as I will!

We are now in the midst of winter when the days are shorter, nights longer.
This is a good time for introspection, tuning into what your spirit needs to find harmony and balance. Some pastimes that come to mind are yoga, taking walks, and painting natural scenes or your favorite memories. Celebrate your wonderful spirit!

I am looking forward to seeing you at the January 13th meeting!

A Unique Walk from Figurative to Abstract Painting with Beverly Yankwitt

Citrus Watercolor Society is inviting you to take this journey during a two-day workshop with nationally known artist, Beverly Yankwitt. For a preview of the two-day workshop, join us on Friday February 10th at the First Christian Church Family Center, 2018 Colonade, Inverness at 11:15 for light refreshments, followed by a short business meeting at noon. After the business meeting enjoy a demonstration by Beverly about her abstract paintings. Her two-day workshop follows on Saturday Feb. 11 and Sunday Feb 12th from 9AM to 4PM in the Whispering Pines Park recreation building. The cost is $115 for CWS members, $145 for non-members. The demo is free, but a $5 donation from guests is appreciated.

Whether you are new to abstract or not, you will learn some creative new techniques as Bev guides you through the intuitive process of making an abstract painting. It’s a freeing experience that employs the traditional elements of design, perspectives and values, but expresses a whole new insight into the subject. You may use collage, stamping and other methods with your watercolors or acrylic paints. (continue reading…)
