Report from the July meeting

We had a great afternoon painting at the July meeting...the subject was a photo taken near Glenorchy of an abandoned dinghy - at the end of the session we had a critique of the paintings which I may say were all very good interpretations of the photo...the afternoon was most rewarding and we will do it again.

Prior to the painting session Loveday Kingsford gave the words of encouragement on the challenge which for this month was "A Misty Morning" - Loveday was very encouraging to all our artists and commented on the high quality of the works submitted - next month's challenge is "Our Own Front Door"

We welcomed two new members to the Society - Ms Marina Botkova and Ms Sachiko Pass - we hope they enjoy being part of the Society
