Welcome to the Pastel Society of New Hampshire

Message From the President

I just looked back to last year’s message for this issue. It said “Spring at last!  I was beginning to think it would never come, but it really always does.”  Well, it did as it really always does. This year it is especially welcome. I’m eager to get outside and paint something green, although, as of this writing, there is still a foot of snow in my backyard.

The year ahead looks busy. We have our Tenth Annual Members’ Show coming up. Ten years is a milestone for a volunteer group, and the existence of the Pastel Society of New Hampshire is a tribute to all of the members who do volunteer.

At the Liz Hayward Sullivan Workshop in February, Liz encouraged the participants to volunteer. I echo her words. We need new people to enrich PSNH with fresh ideas. Volunteer for a director’s post or chair one our events. If you like to work with a friend or spouse, volunteer as co-chairs. Call our vice president, Lisa Regopoulos, or me to find out what is needed and what you can do to help our society celebrate its eleventh annual members’ show.

Watch for the notice to submit your application for the “It’s Pastel!” show.  As you know, this will be our first year to use an online submission site, www.onlinejuriedshows.com. An email blast will go out to members and previous participants. All applications will be completed online; no more CDs! Help will be available online and by phone if you need it.

I’d like to thank Mary Ann Eldred for her work as treasurer and Gary Ozias for his work as program chair for the past two years. Both have worked hard at their posts and deserve our gratitude.

We are fortunate to welcome Marilyn Bok to the Treasurer’s position. Marilyn lives in Pennsylvania and enjoys painting portraits. We’re happy to have Marilyn on the board.
As always,
Pat DuBois, President, Pastel Society of NH
