December 2020

We should have been meeting this evening for our Christmas party with food, drink, a quiz or two to pass the time and wearing our very best Christmas jumpers and hats. Well, what a year it’s been, like nothing we’ve ever known before and hopefully won’t know again. We managed to meet a few times at the hall and the church and it’s good to know a lot of you have been painting and sending in your pictures for the blog for all to see.

If you want to draw and paint this month, here’s a few ideas

a Christmas card scene, a meal or snack as a still life in front of you, a drink of wine/whisky/bubbly, a wreath, a garland on a mantlepiece , a Christmas tree, a bauble or favourite decoration, part of the traditional Christmas story, a local church or one where you worship, birds feeding in your garden, a gloves/hat/boots still life, snow in your garden, a favourite wintry countryside view, a robin, Saturnalia celebrations, or a portrait of Father Christmas/Santa/Saint Nicholas. Any style, any medium, send Tracy the photos of your paintings and I’ll put them on the blog. Any pictures you’ve previously painted are welcome too.

Keep safe and well every one of you, and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hopefully we will meet again very soon in 2021!
