Today, I drove over to Mariemont to sit in on the monthly meeting of the Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati and see the guest artist/speaker, Christina Wald.  Christina has done illustrations for children's books, logos, magazines, and other things all over the country for the past 15 years.  She had a lot of her work to show and did a nice PowerPoint presentation, too.  She has a blog of her work and a webpage, if you're interested.  You can find more info here.

I also got to view the current show - the students of Nancy Nordloh Neville's watercolor class - before and again after the meeting.  The show is called Just Add Water and the students each had several paintings showing, as well as Nancy's paintings.  That show continues through March 25th.

Not too warm today, but the sun was shining and it was a nice day for a drive.

And tonight we SPRING FORWARD!

Her watercolours look lovely Rhonda. Great to hear how your meeting went at the art club. I hope you are keeping well.

Caroline, the art club is all mediums (or is that media?) so I go to the talks that focus on painting or printing but not woodcarving or such. The group has been around for 120 years but I just heard about it last year and joined. I think most women join because they have a gorgeous gallery space members can use as well as classes and studios for rent.

Is that one of your babies in that bottom photo? They sure grew into handsome little fellows! Your day sounded awesome, Rhonda. I never know of or hear of these events.

Sherry, yes, that is one of the babies - not quite all grown but getting bigger :) We still have 2 in the aquarium we're raising. I joined the Woman's Art Club last year so I get their info and our watercolor society has programs every month, too. So much art I don't hear about, either - like shows opening, etc; but there is only so much you can see! Right now the Cincinnati Art Museum is showing 12 Monets on loan to us plus Picasso's prints and Nick Cave fun creations - worth a trip down this month or next!
