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!

  1. Thank you so much for this Tracy and for all you’ve done this year.   It is so sad to think we should all be together tonight and I hope normal meetings can resume soon. In the meantime I hope everyone has kept safe and well and wish you all a happy Christmas. Angela D

    • Thank you for kind words, Angela D, this year has been a challenge! It has been a very odd year, but I’m so pleased we could have a few arty sessions in between lockdowns. Hopefully we’ll be able to start again before too many months have passed.

  2. Dear Tracy I’d like to thank you for all the help, ideas and support that you have given this year. I haven’t found it easy to keep all my interests going ( art, poetry, writing, sewing) but your ideas have inspired me to think projects through, even if they haven’t gone to completion, but I have read every one of your posts. I’d also like to thank all of the people who have organised meetings and sent in pieces of work, which have lifted my spirits. I hope that everyone has a lovely Christmas and New Year. With love to you all Myrna Sent from my iPhone


    • Thank you, Myrna, I’m so pleased that you have read all the posts and have enjoyed looking at the photos of artwork that people send in. They really are super paintings from M&C members. Good to hear that some ideas have helped keep you busy, you are a very creative lady with all those interests! Have a lovely Christmas and New Year too and hopefully we’ll meet again sometime in 2021.
