At our April meeting local watercolor artist Phil Schmidt demonstrated how to paint the sky; during his demonstration he was quite candid and informative with our members and quests.
Our RAA program on Thursday, February 15th featured artist David Alston, formerly of Baltimore, who shared his paintings and history. Thank you David, we were awed and inspired by you!
