Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It . . .
The icy conditions outside the Pine Shores gallery on Jan. 4 couldn't chill the enthusiasm inside as Linda Coulter's Saturday pastel class carried on as usual. The picture on the easel, incidentally, is by Chris Koutsogiannis, who snapped this group portrait of the class.
