Our next meeting is March 20. The demo Artist for March will be Christina Yielding..

In her words: I was introduced to the art world about 14 years ago. From the first time I put color onto that blank endless possibility called a canvas, something magical happened. Over the years that magical process has had its way with me, leading me from a hobby to a career. Painting fills me with a sense of accomplishment, satisfaction and integrity, and has proven to be a most amenable vehicle for translating my inner vision to an outer reality.

I paint solely on wood and custom build each frame around every piece. No paint technique is crafted using a variety of scrapers. The preparation is an art in itself. Though I work quite deliberately, consciously employing both traditional and innovative techniques, my subconscious is the undisputed project manager.
