March Meeting! really helps a lot to get renewals in a timely fashion.
Pat Boldizar will be showing her watercolors and pastels from March 21st through May 6th, 2012 at:
Friends Art Gallery at Spanish River Library and Community Center,
1501 NW Spanish River Blvd. ,Boca Raton, FL .
The Opening and Reception will be March 21st, 2012 from 6 to 8 pm. You're invited.
At the paint-outs we have been trying out a new concept,
suggested by Manny, of having a group critique at the end
of the painting session. After painting we will line up our
paintings and have a group critique. If you want com-
ments from the group, add your painting to the
lineup. All levels of participation are welcomed. Ask the
group for feedback on your painting or just listen and
learn to others in the meet-up group. Bring your lunch
and we can make it a picnic.
Marlene Weiss organized and implemented a 50-50 raffle
at the February meeting. Evelyn Cohen helped Marlene
with the selling of the raffle tickets and Evie was quite the
sales person. Carol Ann Sherman brought some items
from Cheap Joes and Holbein to add as raffle prizes so
the first 50-50 raffle was quite successful and lots of fun.
PBWS has display racks in case we need them for any exhibits but they
are also available for rental if any artist needs them, Members of Palm
Beach Watercolor Society get discounted rates on the rental. And, of
course the revenue benefits our art education fund. Marilyn Young
manages this program. Keep this in mind if you need racks for a show
or hear of someone who needs them.
Can you Yupo? Well if you were at the February meeting you would have a good
idea of how to get going with watercolor on Yupo. Carol Ann Sherman, aka “Princess
of Yupo” was the demo artist at the February meeting. She is very talented and her
enthusiasm is infectious. Check out these photos Sharon took of the demo.

ARTIST of THE MONTH
I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, at-
tended Erasmus Hall High School and
the City College of New York and
earned a degree in psychology. I
taught arts and crafts at a summer
camp, studied English and Hebrew cal-
ligraphy, and created diplomas, wed-
ding vows, invitations, and cookbook
Art is what I love doing best.
I worked at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York in the adult in-patient psychiatric
unit doing art therapy and running groups. I was intrigued by how the patients related their lives and problems in
their drawings. When I moved into Manhattan I found a class in box making at a local “Y.” I took that class for ten
years and hand built and covered boxes that I designed and sold. One of my paintings won an award for excellence
at a NY gallery. Many have been on exhibit and several were sold. I love doing things with my hands.
I„ve taken workshops and studied with Don Andrews, Ted Nuttall, Jean Grasdorf,
Pat Dews, Carol Ann Sherman, Pat Weaver and others. Jean Grasdorf‟s pouring
techniques, Carol Ann Sherman‟s whimsical approach and Ted Nuttall‟s unique style
have influenced how I paint. At present I am studying fine art photography at Old
School Square in Delray Beach and using some of my images for my watercolor
paintings. I live in Delray Beach with my husband Howard, a CPA, raised three
wonderful sons, Michael, Eliot and David, am blessed with nine grandchildren and
one adorable great grandson.
I am a member of and on the board of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society, belong
to the Delray Art League, The Artist Guild and the Boynton Beach Camera Club.
