Here are the pictures of this morning’s work at the Bowls Club. Quite a few very good likenesses, I thought. I did ask for identification on the picture, but I think most people forgot. While in the summer it is easy enough to know who did what, because they send it it, in the winter it would be helpful if you either wrote your name on your work, or on a piece of paper to be displayed on or near it. It seems unfair on those I don’t remember, not to be able to say… What I will say is that I hope John will keep us updated with the progress of his canvas - love Avril's squared-off Maggie-Anne, is this AI art? - thanks to Freda for drawing all her fellow portraitist's feet! - thanks to Irene for allowing me to take a photo of her roses before she went, and it was very good to have the show and tell back in full flow. My squiggle on the end is my take on Jackie's exercise from last week, with the saddle as subject matter.
[I find it very interesting when people show the progress of a work, and we can follow it, week on week. Ed]
First, a reminder of the Christmas Chairman's project 'Where on Earth are we Going To?' 2D work please, ready for presentation at the Christmas party on 14 December.
Second, the Exhibitions Working Party have put together a submission to the Halesworth Gallery, who have put out a call for artists for exhibitions next year. To accompany the submission, they would like members to email Sally L an image or two (or three) of your best work in the next week, please firstname.lastname@example.org, with some idea of medium used. These may also be used for submission to other possible venues.
Third, Sally L's workshop next week has a list of materials on the Stop Press page. Have a look before next week. It is also just possible that the workshop may have to be postponed, in which case that is also where you will find that information.
I am going to be on holiday for the next couple of weeks. If you have work to send in for the blog, it should go to Avril or Sally L (I'm not sure yet who will be doing the blog. Look at Stop Press before sending).
