On January 13th the sun came out and the temperatures warmed into the mid 50s so the Saint Louis Watercolor Society invited their members to come out and paint plein air at The Muny. Thirteen painters came out and 3 visitors graced us with their greetings. Everyone enjoyed it and everyone said that they were up for another impromptu gathering.
Here are some photos from the day’s event:
Gail Crosson’s watercolor collage entitled Hootlets was featured in the new Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff 2021 Guide to Great Art catalog on page 20. Gail has been busy with her artwork during the pandemic and decided to send her collage in to Cheap Joe’s for consideration in their section “What We’re Doing” and it was chosen to be included in their latest publication. We are thrilled to see Gail receive recognition for her incredible collages.
Due to the pandemic, the Saint Louis Watercolor Society did not hold their traditional holiday party. Instead they invited members to gather at a ZOOM meeting on December 9th and share winter themed paintings. It was an enjoyable event and we hope more members will attend our next scheduled ZOOM meeting on January 20th at 7 p.m. when Mary Dee Schmidt will critique paintings submitted by members. Watch for an email with the ZOOM link.
Here are some of the paintings shared at the December meeting:
