May 10 Meeting Recap

About 20 members and guests met at Presbyterian Church-Broomfield. Carol Dillard announced that we will be able to do a sales show at the Anthem Ranch clubhouse on July 9-10.

Barb Wagamon gave an excellent presentation on how she approaches a painting  - through detailed research and investigation into the process of choosing the primary and complementary colors, and some of the effects she uses. Jane Doak also presented her approach to a painting (so we got a two for one!).
Fall Member Show is a Go!
Thank you to our show committee volunteers: Sally Bullers, Carol Dillard, Barb Wagamon, Michelle Skulley! The location is confirmed for College Hill Library in Westminster.
