President’s Message for December 2010
“The Friendliest Little Watercolor Club”. If there was any doubt, (and there wasn’t) last month’s meeting convinced me. For all of those who attended the “Paint A Round”, you know what I mean. Because even though I call it a “meeting”, I thought it was much more a “get together”. For those who painted, impressive! I am continually amazed at the amount of talent this club has. But I also loved the way everyone else got involved, mingled and socialized with each other. Usually at the meetings we get to socialize, then settle into a nice demo. This meeting I noticed that, from start to finish, the interaction this group displayed showed me why we are known as “The Friendliest Little Watercolor Club”. I admit there were times I worried if the Paint A Round would be a “pumpkin”. But this group proved to me, NOTHING will stop us from being such a great group of artists and friends. So for those who were unable to attend, you missed a good one.
And before we leave last month behind I have to thank Glenda Ackley and all who helped make it so special. She deserves all the credit for the Paint A Round’s success. I would like to remind the participating artists to bring the painting in to the Holiday Luncheon for us to see the “finished paintings”.
Speaking of next months meeting, December 10th’s meeting brings us the Holiday Luncheon. I will be disappointed if everyone does not attend! Darla Goldberg, Sandy Dunham, and all the other volunteers have put in a lot of work. So the Luncheon promises to be exciting. In addition to being fortunate enough to have Steve Rogers for our demo and a workshop, there is much you do not want to miss. The great food. The hand painted cards we want you to bring in to exchange. The many gifts you may receive. And most of all the friendships we continue to make and share. It is because of you the members that we are known as the “Friendliest Little Watercolor Club”. And especially during this holiday season, I know that friendliness will be on display.
Due to the fullness of this month’s meeting Painting of the Month will be postponed until January.
Citrus Watercolor Club wishes everyone a “Happy Thanksgiving”, and looks forward to seeing you at the December “Holiday Luncheon”.
