Congratulations Marsha, well done on winning the competition! It will be great to paint with you when you get here, and we will enjoy those outings. Normally we would have a good crowd, and during festival time, possibly even more!!
I am delighted to learn you are coming to Art in the Open 2011. That will be an exciting trip and through the website you will be familiar with a good number of the artists you will run into in Wexford in July. I am sure you will make many new friends.
We don't have as many pastel painters in our membership as we should. They are a great plein air medium. I look forward to seeing some of your work posted on site.
