Today =
Happy New Year!!!

Are you planning on turning over a new leaf to commemorate the new year - or making any resolutions you'll break before January is finished? ha ha  Not me.  Just painting without drawing in my Strathmore Visual watercolor journal (90# paper, not 140# but it seems to hold up pretty well).

Tomorrow = 
If the weather allows, we will have our first 2013 meeting of the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society.  The guest artist/speaker will be founding member, Marilyn Bishop.  Marilyn will share her tips on saving watercolor scraps and adding to them to create original, unique bookmarks, using matboard as the base.  I'm taking some collaged scraps from my Myrna Wacknov workshop and matboard and hope to make a few bookmarks for myself during the open paint session after the program.  If you're in the area, come on by!  We'll be there from 10 am - 1 pm.

I've got another year of being Program Chairperson for the GCWS and have our next 6 months' programs scheduled so no need to do anything except try out our new DVD Player/Projector after the meeting today.
