As a society of over 200 members, we have a wide variety of skill levels, but we all have one thing in common! We all get excited about our art! For some, it is the first painting, the first sale, when someone says “I like that!”, or when you get an artist award. I would like you to send us, your story of joy, so we can all share it. It can be just a line or two, a picture of your art and a note, or a formal write up.
