Message from the President
Happy April! I think that means it’s spring. The weather is warming up and it is nice to get out to paint or draw. Please find time to work on your craft, whatever medium you work in. Or try something new!
I hope you had a chance to see the Michael Obermeyer demonstration in March. I think we all enjoyed it and learned some new techniques, especially for use in plein-aire painting, something that Michael specializes in. Also recall how he starts off his painting with large, loose strokes of black and a colored paint (blue in this case), to set the stage for what was yet to come. You may also wish to take his recommendation and read “Hawthorne on Painting.”
I would like to thank Doug Dow for his professional work on the newsletter. It is great to get a refresh on the newsletter, which communicates such valuable information each month. Thanks again to Karen Neal for her work on it for a few years! For those of you who are not aware, Mike Dawson is currently maintaining and updating our new website. Please check it out at www.Anaheim-Art.org. Thank you also to all of our board members who keep the Anaheim Art Association running.
Have a great spring. Share some of your new art creations at our monthly meetings. Send photos to Karen.
