Official Opening of the 

“Group of Three” Show.

featuring Elissa Anthony, Judy Maxwell, and last but not least Lloyd Major (age before beauty Lloyd)

(see below for more information)

My Buddy and fellow exhibitor Judy Maxwell, suggested that we hang out at the MAC in the Arrowsmith Gallery on this coming Saturday the 11th. We will set up our easels and all three of us will be painting.

Yes really ~ and we want some company.

We would love to see you ~ so many were not able to attend last Saturday as “Old Man Winter”

wanted to show us who was the boss!

We will have nibbles, coffee, tea, a few jokes, and can answer any question you have pertaining to our work.

So.. to recap

Elissa, Lloyd and Judy have been friends for many years and thought it was about time to do a joint show of their latest works.

All three are oil painters and specialize in landscapes of Vancouver Island, the Interior and the prairies. These professional painters have sold far and wide as well as teaching many how to paint and enjoy the process.

Reception ~ Saturday February 4th, 2017 ~ 1 to 3 pm. The MAC Centre, Parksville.

All classes have beginners, intermediate and seasoned painters in them with never more than 6 students. So lots of variety.

Please bring any oil or acrylic paints you may have, paper towels or rags, oil painters bring ODORLESS Solvent or turpinoid, a surface to work on such as a canvas or canvas board, a paint smock or clothes you can get paint on. A sketch pad. An idea of what you want to paint with references ~ NOT on an I pad or phone. Printed off. Photos of your choosing. And last but not least bring your enthusiasm.

For beginners, I can supply you with paint and brushes for 5 bucks a lesson. I recommend this so that you can see what your preference will be. I have a supply of canvas on site which you may purchase.

I will supply the coffee, easels, instruction and a few good jokes. There is parking in both driveways and the gate will be open so that you will not have to struggle with your supplies.
