Santa Fe Plaza in June

I apologize for the late posting of our sketches at the Plaza on June 17th.  Several members traveled to Santa Fe by the early train and seemed to enjoy the experience .  After sketching and lunch, many explored the Museum of Art just off the plaza.

Just a reminder:  I will no longer be coordinating this group after the November, 2017 gathering.  I hope someone will step up to take over – otherwise, the group will no longer be.  I would be very happy to answer any questions as to what this coordinator job entails.    Barbara


Saturday in Madrid, NM

I am thrilled to say that our group is gradually growing.  This past Saturday, twenty of us showed up to capture the quirkiness of the wonderful Village of Madrid, New Mexico.  After sharing, nine of us stayed and enjoyed a wonderful lunch and more “getting to know you ” time.

CONGRATULATIONS to Jay Leutwyler for his induction into the New Mexico Watercolor Society as a Signature Member.
