Recent Events at TXPS

We had a beautiful day for our Spring Paint Out at the Antique Rose Emporium with Kraig Kiedrowski giving a demo.  He selected an agave for his model and showed us how he sketches out in the field with final details at his studio.  A plein air painting doesn't mean it will be finished out in the field.

The 5th Annual All Member Show is up at the Tobin at Oakwell Library through May 5th.  Members brought in paintings reflecting the theme " A Pastel Fiesta!" and we have received many great comments on it.  A community workshop was held on Saturday, April 14th and 13 came in to try out pastel painting.  Parents sat with their children and enjoyed the experience of painting with pastels.  They left with a framed with a mat painting.  Immediately afterwards the reception was held and enjoyed by all at the library, taking time to vote for their favorite painting.  After a dramatic 5 way tie, the final vote broke the tie giving it to Irene Taylor for her "La Charreada"!  Congratulations, Irene!
