Marlene Roberts, of the New Mexico Orchid Guild, brought in several live examples of her gorgeous orchids—members where invited to draw and photograph them as much as possible in preparation for the upcoming Orchid Guild Show at the Botanic Gardens. Marlene also gave a details presentation of orchid details and parts, including a handout for members in attendance.
Lin & Judy showed items that they purchased at Artisan’s Expo 2014. Both mentioned the lack of colored pencils at the show and an overall disappointment in what was available. Highlights included wooden boards in which colored pencil could be directly applied or as a support for paper, new pencil cases that stand upright, sanded paper that is to fill the void between U-Art and Kitty Wallis, Mineral Paper that is water-resistent and Splash Inks.
Rex brought his laptop and projector so we could view The CPSA 2014 International Show and Exlore This 10! DVD.
