2016 SPRING WORKSHOP
Bev Jozwiak

Bev Jozwiak, AWS, NWS

Well, Bev Jozwiak and her husband, Bob, made it home to Vancouver, WA safe and sound and in time for Mother’s Day. Thanks so much to Bev for a wonderful week of laying thick paint on hot press, concentrating on shapes more than objects, incorporating the background and foreground into the painting process, and, of course, value…there is always a dark side and a light side. Bev painted ballet dancers, a cow, a cowboy, a young, black girl, a crow, a rooster, and her daughter with her dog. Just about all her demos sold. In fact, we were her best selling workshop. In addition, Bev demonstrated her skill at our May Members Meeting. This painting immediately sold as well. Thanks, Bev! 

If you did not get her book, here is a link for you: www.chrisunwin.net 

UWS has purchased her DVD. If you would like to borrow it, contact Cindy Hepworth: cindyjhep@gmail.com

THIS MONTH'S PAINT OUT

We had another fabulous year's end at Light on the Reef, Torrey, 2016. The weather was fair, with a breeze. We 32 Artists had great success both painterly and sales wise. We  displayed 78 Paintings and forty sold. Some of those sold are going into the new center for Entrada to be part of their permanent collection. What is now a three bedroom home next to Robber's Roost, will expand to space for groups of eighty. We all came home with extra paintings and sketches and bug bites in our hair.  

Maura took almost an entire frame shop down to ensure quality framing. Thank you Maura for all that you put into the trip. Also thanks to the Entrada Board and Leah and the Park Service. We painted more historic buildings this year. The towns people responded. The entries were even better than ever.

We want to have a paint out from the parking lot of the SUP this August. Evening time, I think. More info to follow.
