Meet New Member Deb LaFogg

Some of our long-time members may recall artist Deb LaFogg, who was a member about four years ago. She recently attended one of our meetings and decided to re-join. We're so happy that she did, because we get to hear about her paintings, like this one, titled "Squash Bug on Strap Fern."

This painting has been accepted into the Art of the Animal Kingdom XVIII show at the Bennington Center for the Arts in Bennington, Vermont. This show begins June 15 and will run through August 25. This is one of the most prestigious wildlife exhibitions, and over 65 pieces will be included in the show. Congratulation, Deb, and welcome! You can see more of Deb's artwork at her website here.

At our March meeting, we invited artist Carol Ann Sherman to demonstrate her watercolor techniques on Yupo. I actually missed the meeting, and am so sorry I did. Carol Ann kept everyone entertained with her enthusiasm and her artistic talents. Here are some photos from the evening:
