Meeting Recap for February 10, 2019

Founding member and longtime artist, Roberta Lerman did a great demo for our group.  Even though she is retired she still has an art class at the Maitland Sr. Center on Wed. afternoons. She designed our original logo egret design with the paintbrush for the eye and beak and named our newsletter The WaterMark.

She discussed the eight points of Self Critique that artists should ask themselves about their work. Such as, is there anything in my painting that is confusing?  Do I have a strong focal point?
