August Meeting

This months project was titled Luscious Landscapes.
Penny Elliott led the group demonstrating how felt lends itself to creating the wonderful textures, colours, shapes, & lines of the landscape. The group then worked on their own paintings in felt. 
We look forward to seeing some photos of the finished pieces here on the blog after next months meeting.
