The Alberta Society Of Artists held their annual BBQ a few weeks ago at the heritage site, Perronoud Ranch just north of Cochrane. This was my first event as a new member of the ASA. It was a wonderful day. Sunny and warm. By the end of the day it was sunny with gale force winds.
My wife and I went early to do a little painting on the property. I was very pleased with my little study. We ate on this veranda. Some of our meal was simply blown into the surrounding fields by the wind.
I was very pleased to be juried into the ASA this year. I think the thing I like most about membership in art groups like this is the connection and networking with other like minded artists. To associate with, share ideas with, and learn from your peers is wonderful and very motivating. I’m always amazed at the range of interests and directions that others are pursuing. And most of all is the wonderful sense of camaraderie I feel, fellow travellers and all.
