GCWS PROGRAM?

Tomorrow's program for the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society is supposed to feature artist and teacher, Barbara Hart Sailor.  She will be coming from north of Dayton, OH.  I have been looking forward to her visit, but the weather may not cooperate.  Her area of OH is supposed to get 6-8 inches of snow by Wednesday morning, and we are supposed to get 2-3 inches here in NKY. 

Barb and I have been on-line buddies for years - since we both were in WatercolorWorkshop, the Yahoo group, and during my years of being List-Mom of the Yahoo group SWAP.  Barb always participated in the SWAPs and it was a treat to receive one of her paintings in the mail.  Barb has several blogs going, so you can visit and see some of her work, from watercolor to acrylic inks, traditional acrylic on canvas, and oils - there seems to be no medium she cannot conquer but I especially like her watercolors.

I'm hoping Barb and I can reschedule her program for later this year and that she will get to drive down and we'll meet in person.  Sometimes Mother Nature does what she wants and our plans don't mean much.

I hope you all are safe and warm, wherever you are and whether you got hit with another snowstorm or not.  Perhaps you are in Australia, swimming in the ocean - if so, send some of that warm, sunny weather our way!

I am sad for you both if you don't get to meet in person, although I would be so jealous! Hope it works out for you later in the year.

Dear Rhonda - this is sad news...the weather this time of the year makes it hard to have plans...I know we are to get 5-8" tonight. Maybe they are wrong! I have Barb on my list of blogs I follow - she has lovely art for sure. Hope it works out later in the year.

Sounds like the snow we got yesterday has headed your way. I hope that your workshop can still happen, Rhonda.

Thanks, Susan, Debbie and Sherry. The program/meeting was cancelled due to the snow but I've already rescheduled Barb to come down in October :) The snow is beautiful - heavy, wet and coating all the trees and shrubs.
