Monthly Member Meeting
A very large group of members attended the monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 23. The featured speaker was Appolonia Jamison.
Many framed pictures were shown, with an emphasis on harmonious colors and professional techniques and materials.
Appolonia began by showing an early piece with an unfinished back, and then shared many more beautifully-framed pieces.
She surprised the group by disassembling a framed oil painting, so that all could see the various layers of materials used.
Additional pictures are available on the Guest Speaker page.
