Presented by BetteLou Tobin:

  FEBRUARY ~ TRIPTYCH ~ Three panels depicting three angles of the same subject, perhaps, or three seasons of the same scene or three phases of your life time.  Anyway, three paintings or drawings connected in some way.

 MARCH ~ PLEIN AIR ~ The weather might be good for another foray outside. How about the Phoenix Zoo?

 APRIL~ MUSIC ~ Fire up your imagination with music. Let music guide your brush, pencil or fingers to produce whatever feelings you have while listening. This can be classical, jazz, country, show tunes, any genre of music you prefer. Set the mood with a musical piece, feel the colors and the place it sends you to and put it on canvas. No LSD required.

 MAY ~ No activity ~ Invocations and party. 

The Phoenix Art Museum has tours for groups available and they will allow sketching with pencils only, no paint. However, they do not give discounts, so the fee is $18.00 per person. If there is interest to go as a group, let me know and I can arrange it sometime.

For more information, contact BetteLou Tobin;  602-246-810

Pamela Shearer

Pamela Shearer will be doing a watercolor demonstration for the March PAG meeting.  

 Throughout her childhood, Pamela took an interest in drawing.   And when she went to college, she majored in art and also completed the Famous Artist Schools through correspondence.   Having success in selling her artwork, Pamela continued to do art and crafts while raising her children in addition to having a career in teaching.  Now, she is retired and is able to fully devote her time to painting with watercolors and occasionally oils. 

 Pamela loves to paint, especially with watercolors, because of all the various effects the combined water and color can give and create.   She likes to have quite a bit of white paper and will remove layers of paint, to capture the light falling on her subjects. 

 Most of her work comes from photos she takes while traveling or on vacations; so, Pamela paints landscapes, flowers, animals, old buildings and water.   Pamela also likes to paint vacation memory pictures for people from their favorite photos.

 One of Pamela’s statements on art is, “People need art to enrich their lives; there are things we can hang on our walls that create peace or joy or contemplation.  My paintings are gentle and joyful, bringing smiles to people.  I love to see someone notice the detail and step closer to look carefully at the tiny strokes and color changes.  That detail can serve as a Mandela when we stop to really look.”
