I joined a thing!
I joined a local art society. Been meaning to do it since I moved here. I was going to describe it as prestigious, but it isn’t that at all. It’s…venerable. It’s an amateur society set up fifty years ago to complement the local professional society.
You don’t apply to join the professional society. If they want you, they’ll let you know.
In addition to monthly lectures of various kinds, the real appeal is the annual show. And the appeal of the annual show is to kick me in the ass and make me paint some shit.
Behold, my ancient pile of watercolor tubes! (Here it is in color, because honestly that looks pretty cool).
Now I just have to paint something.
