Congratulations to everyone who entered the shows!
Your entries help your painting group continue to thrive and offer artists opportunities to grow in a wonderful safe environment, expand skills, show work and enjoy the camaraderie of a supportive, no judgement circle of artists.
The judges had a tough time choosing and commented on the quality of the entries and how much improvement they had seen. You should all be proud.
To all who have entered for the first time... applause! It takes courage and you have taken the mighty step. We hope it was a joyful experience.
