Snow, snow, snow!!!!!!

Clearly no class today…stay home, stay warm….the snow seems to be endless…….

Some good news that has nothing to do with being snowed in…. I have been offered the use of the WPA Gallery at Pound Ridge Nature Reserve next December for a student show.  We will have an opening reception and have a great venue to show your lovely drawings and paintings!  I’m very happy to have a place for our winter show once more!  In the spring we will have a spring show at Lasdon that will be open to the public as well.  So start thinking of pieces you would like to put in the spring show :O) (no date yet…sometime in May).

Come on spring…..February can’t last forever…can it?
