Dec. 9 Meeting

We met as usual at the Boyden Library on Dec. 9. Among the issues discussed were the need for a new treasurer; the Small Works Show for 3 weekends in April at Patriot Place; other exhibiting venues for members; and Holiday gift ideas from Frank Quinn, to wit, the book "Master Thieves" (about the art heist at the Gardner Museum) available on Dec. 15 at the Walpole Library, and the making of T-shirts from your painting at Ink'd in Mansfield --  both items priced at $25.
Then our demonstrator, Jim Wolford, held court and demonstrated how he worked on a landscape in oils from a photo. Jim is a Copley artist (which means he was judged to be terrific by the Copley Society in Boston).  His web page is: Here is a photo of Jim painting at our meeting.
