- September 12th, Monday – Annual CMW Member meeting. Come to meet and greet colleagues, bring items for the Silent Auction, enjoy a
free dinner, find out the future of CMW and provide your input. Arrive at 5:15 to register and submit Silent Auction items plus meet friends and new members. REMEMBER to visit the Paramount show before September 12th and bring your voting form for the new Member’s Choice Award. The form is found at the back of the August newsletter — print it and bring it. Another important item — CMW will need a new Treasurer and a new Vice President. CMW depends on member volunteers to fill these leadership roles. The Board operates in a collegial way and decisions are made by consensus where there is support given to all positions. Consider stepping forward to fill with these roles.
2. October meeting – Change in demo artist
Unfortunately Terry Oscarson (Zen Doodle) will not be able to join us due to an unplanned emergency. Susan Fryer Voigt has agreed to come to our October meeting at the Paramount and here is what she says about her demo:
“Here is the information about what I will be demonstrating. In 2011, I was fortunate to study with a well-known American artist in Scotland. During those two weeks of painting with transparent watercolors outdoors, the instructor suggested that I might be a “layerist” instead of a transparent watercolorist. He offered his casein and acrylic paints so that I could work the way I do with acrylics, pastels, oils and casein. Since then, I have been using watercolor in a “layerist” manner – often using a roller and trowels along with brushes to attain the dimension and texture. Aquapasto is an additive that thickens watercolor and gouache can really make a difference. Even plein air painting is now pleasurable with watercolors. I will be demonstrating how I use these tools, paints, additives, and different surfaces.” Susan Fryer Voigt
Here are some examples:
