Hello artists,

Our guest artist this month is artist, Sandy Daniel. She was our guest last August to give us her perspective, opinions and an unbiased critique ~ there was such a positive response, we wanted to bring her back. So bring a painting you would like to share and hear Sandy's insight. (Remember our annual juried show is October 31, 2014, and she may be able to give some insight for a more successful painting).

See you Tuesday, 7:00pm at TAF, LaDonna Vohar, President 765-237-1252

**Remember that an objective critique is an important part of an artist's career. We all have blind spots to at least some aspects of our work, and we can sometimes overcome those blind spots with genuine objective criticism. Sometimes we ask our friends to tell us what they think of our work, but that isn't always the best idea. Some of us are way to hard on ourselves and keep overworking a painting when it was just fine hours or days before. The critique allows us, as an artist, to look at our work in an objective way. Hopefully, we are then able to "see" our work with fresh insight, and sometimes gives us a new direction in which to go.
