I hope that you are all enjoying the summer weather – and painting up a “storm”.

We had a great Members’ Meeting on May 13th. We enjoyed hands-on “Mini Workshops” taught by PSNH members Joelle Feldman and Lisa Regopoulos. It really was such a fun way to learn how to use underpainting.

I need to remind you all that we tend to go out for lunch after our Members’ Meetings – it has proved to be a wonderful way to get to know each other.  All are welcome.

Our 12th Annual Members’ Exhibit was held at the Sunapee Landing Trading Company in Sunapee from May 14th through June 11th. It was a beautiful exhibit.  There are some great photos on our website.

We had a fantastic workshop with Lisa Regopoulos in June.  She is great at sharing all her tips on how we can make our paintings more interesting.  I did attend this workshop myself and did learn quite a few things.  It was held at Wild Salamander Creative Art Center which was also hosting an exhibit featuring 3 of our members, Joelle Feldman, Maryann Mullett, and Lisa Regopoulos.  

Our next workshop happens in October from the 20th through the 22nd.  Christine Ivers will be showing us how to paint/enhance nightscapes.  The registration form is on our website. Do plan on coming – it should be a great workshop.

Our 9th national juried show, “Its Pastel!” will be held from October 21st through November 25th at the Discover Portsmouth Center.  Please use Show Submit ( to enter.

I invite you to become a more active member of our society.  Please consider becoming a board member.  Our next Board Meeting is August 5th – you are welcome to attend.  Contact me if you are interested. My email is 

Hope to see you all soon!! 

As always, Nancy Johnson
