As it's a vibrant group of artists I wanted to talk about something that every artist can relate to, which is the evolution of an artists style and their career. For me the best way to express the living/changing nature of art was to present a slide show of how my own art has morphed through the years.

The RLAA has a super system for presenting power-point slide shows, and after a few technical difficulties initially setting it up, David Gilmore got it running smoothly for me. I was very grateful to him for that because having it to spur along my discussion points made it way easier and quite natural for me. I was delighted, many folks asked me questions afterwards (a good sign they found it interesting; bored people don't ask, they just want it to be over! ha ha!) It was a really good experience!
Next month, Michelle LaRose is scheduled to speak. I think I will try and make it to that meeting as I'd be interested to hear about her process of creating her contemporary abstracts.
