May meeting notes

What a meeting! What a demo! 

After a brief review of society business, Clive Tyler from Taos took over and wowed us with a fantastic landscape demo.

Clive shared  techniques, composition elements, ideas, and so much more that we all came away enriched, ready to try them out.  Thanks Clive! A special thanks to Mary McIntosh for introducing us to Clive.
