Hi Everyone

Just to let you all know that the demonstration by artist Hashim Kalib on the 7th September was a huge success so thanks Jackie Middleton for finding such a gem.

This was the first demonstration we have held since the beginning of the first lock-down and it was lovely to see friends again.

We followed all the recommended Covid rules and our chairs were at least 2m apart. Refreshments were just as they have always been so thanks Chris Sullivan – dashing through the washing up as the dishwasher wasn’t up and running – and in a hurry to get back to the excellent art appearing on Hashim’s easel.

One new feature was our FREE connection to Zoom allowing members who could not be with us in person to be part of the atmosphere and watch us enjoying our “cuppas” during the break. We had a very positive response from one member using this new facility.

‘Hash’ gave us a riveting demonstration. This picture – painted with a flat 2″ brush using a wide range of bright colours was fascinating. On top of that he was warm, charming, funny and informative. A brilliant demo. Thanks Hash.

One marvellous seascape, full of colour, created in just 45 minutes!

So, onwards and upwards and don’t forget, next month’s demonstration will be back on MONDAY 4th October at COLYFORD VILLAGE HALL. Plenty of parking. So come along. All Covid recommendations will be observed. The artist demonstrating will be Amanda Popham and her work can be seen at the gallery in the middle of Beer.
