December Meeting

At our December meeting Tuesday evening, Tiago Finato (pictured above)enthralled the audience with his techniques in painting a still life. Tiago started with a gray, toned canvas, painting first a loose, abstract version of his composition, followed by painting in the darker elements and saving until the end the light-struck areas. All the while, Tiago explained the principles underlying his techniques. His demonstration was enjoyed by everyone and at the end of the meeting one of the members purchased the painting.
Frank Quinn noted that attendance at the meeting was free and open to the public and members were encouraged to bring friends or relatives with them to future meetings. The meetings are always held on the second Tuesday of the month. Therefore the next meeting will be Jan. 10.
Haydi Hurley is organizing a watercolor workshop with the wonderful Cindy Baron for the weekend of April 21. The cost is $60 per day and will be held in East Walpole. Contact Haydi at hchurley@comcast.net and let her know if you want to sign up for a 1-day or 2-day workshop.

Second Day Altenative for Lussier Workshop

Due to the great response for the David & Pam Lussier workshop, we have added a second Sunday, February 12, to allow for smaller groups and more individual attention -- but probably at a slightly higher price than the $55 originally quoted. Please let Tony Donovan (tony@asdonovan.com) know if you can commit to either date (1/29 or 2/12) as he will try to balance the number of participants over the two workshop dates. The cost is still to be determined, depending on how many we have for each date.
And don't forget our upcoming meeting this Tuesday evening 7 pm at St. Mark's, 116 South Street, Foxboro.
