February meeting news

Hi TXPS Members!

Thanks for coming out to this past Saturday's special TXPS event, an art demo with master artist--Jeannette Cuevas.  She did a watercolor underpainting, then used Pan Pastels, and finally pastel sticks.  Her subject was a colorful Texas Cactus.  A beautiful painting!  I enjoyed lunch with you at Hearthstone too!  Our meeting included announcements that will follow.
