Georgia Neame starts off the PSST summer break as the June 2019 Member Gallery Artist.
Georgia recently began to pursue her passion for art full-time, and continues to hone her craft through workshops and studying with artists she admires. Her beautiful website is filled with pastel, oil and acrylic paintings. She finds inspiration in countryside views, old barns, wild flowers and "when I'm really feeling adventurous, I paint abstracts based on a mood or an object."
Take a relaxing journey through Georgia's website.
During our May meeting members were reminded of the May 15 deadline to register for our Members only show. Entries are not due until June 2 at the Da Vinci gallery in Tomball, Texas.
Betty James gave a brief update on the AOTP show to be held this October.
After the meeting Jeannette Cuevas treated us to a demo on her Pastel technique using 140lb Cold Press Watercolor paper as a surface. Steps include:
Workshop participants painted the same image, which they had drawn on Watercolor paper prior to the workshop. If someone had remembered to bring her cell phone to the meeting and workshop, we could see the results. I'll try to do better next time! We did see lovely paintings.
One of Jeannette's paintings was recently accepted into the publication “Strokes Of Genius 11: Finding Beauty”, which will be coming out in November 2019.
She will also be receiving her Master Circle designation from the International Association Of Pastel Societies (IAPS) at their convention, June 2019, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
