Recap of CFWS Members Holiday Party 2021

It was so good to see so many of our Central Florida Watercolor Society membership at our Dec. 5, 2021, Holiday Party/In house Art Show! Several members expressed how happy they were to meet in person.

The hospitality table was set up outside the clubhouse where we registered, got our tags and had our paintings numbered for the in house art show. Everyone wore their masks while inside the clubhouse.

And what a fabulous art show it was, filled with every type of subject matter! We had large paintings of cute canines, beautiful portraits, wildlife, sumi-e, abstract, architectural and landscape paintings. Everyone I talked to said they wanted to vote for 8 or 9 paintings. But, we were limited to 3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chauncy painted a graceful swan and glazed acrylic medium over the water for a shimmering effect.

 

  So many wonderful paintings! What a talented group!

   Mary took care of the mini paintings, near the  bags.

    The food and drinks were outside in picture perfect weather. We had lots of good things to eat!
