Drawing a Day

Tulipa, Tulips, in colored pencil on film, Dorothy DePaulo
Well, today is the last day of our March Drawing a Day project, to jump start you into art. Hopefully, you've found helpful hints, technique tips, and most importantly, inspiration from other members. Spring has sprung, and it's pretty exciting to see living things poking up through the warmed soil, ready for us to discover and represent.

Many thanks to all the members who participated. Seventeen members sent artworks! Can't do it without you. And, if you have a piece you'd like featured on our blog, please send a .jpg to rmsbartists@gmail.com. We'll post it for you.

Remember, our annual online exhibit, Remembering Summer, is posted for 2 months in October and November. It's a great way to get your art seen and generally has thousands of hits on the Internet. Now that you're all ready to capture nature this summer, plan ahead to submit several images to this exhibit. Entries are not jurored, and yet, we receive amazing beautiful artworks each year. Looking forward to seeing the fruits of your labors.
