Valentine’s Day is over!  I just read a cartoon stating that the day after should be celebrated because the candy was half-priced…..makes sense to me!  Hope your day was special.

The new Gallery Show is terrific!  Our visitors seem to be enjoying the Challenge Paintings, expressing their ideas.  Thanks to Harrietta Harper, our February Challenge is…..All straight lines and one curved.  Look forward to seeing your ideas.

Many have requested that we offer cards for sale, again.  At the next meeting, we will offer a plan, to make the whole procedure easier for the membership, especially, Brenda Foster!  Be there to offer your input!

Next meeting is February 27, 7:00.  Diane Bay will demonstrate the Acrylic Pour Technique.  It promises to be a lively and interesting program!

Check our Website for opportunities to exhibit.  Thanks, to Suzanne Alexander, we have an amazing Website!  Be sure to thank her, for the hard work and technical knowledge she shares with PAPA.

In the wake of yet, another school shooting, please keep all those affected in your thoughts and prayers.  Give all the children in your life, extra hugs.

Okay ….look forward to seeing you, the 27th.  Thank you, for all you do!
