Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month – from September to May – in the Richardson Public Library basement meeting room. The meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.
The business meeting is followed by a demo artist in any of several media including watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, and mixed media.
We also have Painting-of-the-Month available to members, which is voted on by peers at a break in the meeting. Cash awards are given out to winners. Show and Share, also at this time, is a display of any 3-d work by members.
Come early and participate in our Critique Corner at 6:00. Visitors are always encouraged to join us.
Our next meeting is November 21st. The November demo Artist is Pete Quaid, demonstrating his techniques in Oil.
I’ve been painting for 30 years. As a young man I started my own business contracting the painting of billboards. After gathering some years of experience, I signed a contract with a Dallas company and painted their pictorial work in a studio environment for eight years.

My clients have included PepsiCo, GE, Southwest Airlines, Landry’s (Saltgrass, Rainforest), Simon Properties and many schools and restaurants. I feel fortunate that I’ve been able to support myself with a paintbrush for over 30 years.
