At the meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 13 we enjoyed an amazing oil painting demo by Mallo Bisset and her dancing palette knives. A relatively new artist, Mallo began painting only 11 years ago, but she sells an enormous quantity of her work and has built a following both locally and internationally.
Thank you, Mallo.

Mallo Bisset demo on November 13th
January 8th - Sumi E Demonstration -
This meeting inspired members with a Sumi E painting demo by Barbara Schmitz using Chinese Brushes. Barbara, an award winning artist and long time member of PCAA, completed a demo of her dancing brushes and singing ink! in an illustration of the ancient technique known as Sumi E. In demonstrating this ancient art form, Barbara shows the flowing color of nature with her bamboo, butterflies, fish and flowers as the focus of her body of creative work.
The demo was done with the compliment of the overhead technology of the Blake Library. Thank you to Barbara for sharing your art and poetry with us and thank you to Craig and the staff at the Blake Library for such a memorable meeting.
Thank you to Barbara Schmitz for the January 8th demo of the Sumi e art form, its history and its philosophy. It was inspiring.
Thank you Barbara!
