President's Message

Last night I took a stroll through my backyard and noticed several of the iris flowers were in bloom, and others were budding. The lilac bushes are heavy with the rich colors of lavender and purples; not to mention the sweet aroma of this wonderful flower. Springtime in Ohio is a favorite time of year to be outside enjoying the beauty. 

May is a busy time of the year for many of us with upcoming art shows, graduations to attend, family gatherings, and all the other events in our life.
It can be a challenge to to carve out time to paint and work on ideas. I'm an early morning person and I find the quiet of the morning is the best time to think about my art. Sometimes, I don't get to paint until late afternoon. Yet, I do try to set aside a time for art and hope you can do the same.

Thanks- God bless and take care, 
Connie S. Gifford
