Notes of the August general meeting




Lyndelle Stonick (pictured here with Yours Truly at the Paint San Clemente Competition) did a nice slide demonstration. She even teaches workshops on cruises. I hope some of you picked up her brochure. We got to see how Lyndelle does a work start to finish-fun to watch a painting become.  I gleaned that we can paint pastel with alcohol medium to prevent buckling. Pastel is truly versatile. What did you learn?

We had Cheryl Revell volunteer for the much needed executive chair of Treasurer AND Chair for the Allied Gardens show--Members can look forward to exhibiting in 2011. Cheryl has an accounting background. Val Barnard (photo below with Margaret Larlham at Paint San Clemente Gala) also set up a Quick Books account online to ease in the duties and make our 501(c)3 paperwork sparkle!

We briefly discussed a new Members Show for a Spring slot at the Studio 21 in Spanish Village--Terri MCMurray suggested we have an entry fee to help offset costs--I gaged the cost conservatively at $825. We still need a chairperson for this show. I will be using photos from our Members Gallery to represent the type of work we may be exhibiting--for the show application for Spanish Village. 
Shandel Gamer and Jeanne Conant have the directory updated/printed up and will be available for you by our next meeting!

Lyndelle donated an original pastel won by Teri McMurray. Special note: Barbara Peterson who helps us with our raffle had to leave early to tend to her dying beloved pet. Barbara, you must really love us! And we love you for putting the pastel society above your needs.

Thank you to everyone who brought a dish to share: Carol McClure, Sonia Roes,Loretta Decznski, Sally White, Barbara Bartosik, Cheryl Revell.

See everyone at the next meeting!
