Sunday 25th January.

Hi all,

This Sunday we will be meeting in the Queens Gardens, at 2 pm. We can gather in the Rose Garden, by the fountain, and decide what and which direction to explore.

On the meantime, some thoughts from the Huffington Post re painting. The article was brought to my attention by Jimu, one of our new members.

It is entitled: "Let's Make 2015 The Year We All Start Painting" by Katherine Brooks.

It's too long for me to quote in full, but the reference is at the end of this post.

'Painting is easy, you just have to ask the right advises. "Painting is just another was of keepingy a diary," Picasso proclaimed. "Painting is self-discovery," said Jackson Pollock. "Painting is easy when you don't know how," Edgar Degas said rather encouragingly. So why isn't there an easel and painter's palette in every home? Why didn't we follow in Bob Ross' footsteps years ago, and nudge amateur artists to pick up a brush and experiment with happy little trees?'

The article goes on to reference Carol Marine's new book entitled "Daily Painting"

Which brings me back to my constant mantra: "paint small, paint fast, paint daily."

The reference to the article is: hp ref=painting

Thanks Jimu. Much appreciated. Hat tip.

See you all on Sunday.
