Georgia Purcell shared her exciting news with us:

Mayor of Ladue Nancy Spewack commissioned me to paint a watercolor of the City of Ladue’s City Hall for her personally & reproduce giclee prints for resale, notecards & posters to advertise (example below).

You will see these in business windows & schools in Ladue advertising this upcoming event. They are planning to bury a time capsule with memorabilia from 1936 to now.

It has been a fun project to work on.

STLWS Members & Urban Sketchers St. Louis at Missouri Botanical Garden

Members of the Saint Louis Watercolor Society were invited to join Urban Sketchers St. Louis for a sketch-out at Missouri Botanical Garden on Saturday, August 28th, at 9:30 a.m..  As an added treat the garden was still hosting an origami exhibit.  The challenge for the event was to make a sketch that showed some of the construction going on at the garden, plus whatever else caught the artists’ eye. Here are some photos they shared with us of the gathering:
