It’s the New Year…a time for new beginnings! So often we make resolutions to improve something in our lives, yet find it hard to stick to them. I hope this year will be different for you.
When I think about all the excellent education available at Pine Shores…or the various YouTube art videos online…or the numerous books we purchase… our art will stay
Outgoing President Kathy Crocker was unable to attend the Board Meeting on January 10th, so Past President Paul Hartelius presided over the ceremony. Officers (left to right) included Peggy Mahan, Treasurer; Kim Cesaretti, Vice President; Nancy Edwards, President; and Mike Amato, Secretary. The position of Trustee At Large was vacant for the month of January. Candidate Linda Saladino was elected by the general membership at the monthly meeting held on Monday evening, February 5th.
status quo without “practice”. It’s an Olympic Year. Be your own art champion. Commit to being the best artist you can be. Put yourself first with your art. Set time aside each day to practice. Ask an art buddy/coach to give you honest feedback about your work. That is how you will grow as an artist and see your work improve. Go for the Gold!
Special thanks to Paul Hartelius, Willy Mueller, Adam Baulderstone and Bob
Ducan for the beautiful job they did painting PSAA during the holiday break.
I also want to thank my husband Hank for working side-by-side with me
emptying/sorting/restocking the office and kitchen area to prepare for painting.
Our dedicated volunteers at PSAA are priceless!

“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an
artist when you grow up” – Pablo Picasso
Children explore, are free, they experiment…it is through this process that they learn and their creativity soars!
It is interesting to watch adult artists during the learning process…often, being very hard on themselves…expecting perfection or a masterpiece from the start.
Learn to play, relax, and enjoy the process of learning a new art concept. Accept your mistakes as part of learning! Take a class with an open mind, willing to try something new and different. Then you decide if that new technique is incorporated into your work and style or not. Don’t let your work remain stagnant – take risks…PLAY!
TIP: Be sure to keep the work you want to rip up, as a way to witness your
own progress. Date the back…with ongoing effort…and lots of mistakes…
you learn what to do and what not to do…YOU will see improvement!
