Hi all

As mentioned at the AGM, we’re attaching one of an occasional challenge for you.   I don’t know about you, but I find that a dull, cold, wet (and windy!!) January and February doesn’t inspire me with ideas, or make me want to get out and about to find them.   So I need something to fire my imagination to start painting and drawing again after the distractions of Christmas and New Year!  Hence the attached.

Jon keeps saying he wants more pictures for the website, so let’s give him some more….!  By the way, challenges might have been my lightbulb moment to help keep the Club together, but it wouldn’t have gone anywhere without help and ideas from others like Jenny, Davina, Jon and David, the participation and paintings from all of you, and Jon’s ability and willingness to do the hard work of displaying all of our artwork!!   And thanks to Jenny for the Art Profile newsletter – lots to read there!

Thanks to the 30 people who’ve renewed their membership so far – I’ll get your new cards to you ASAP.   Just a gentle reminder to the rest that subs for 2022-23 are now due…

Happy painting and drawing!
