Paula said: "Since we will be in the Christmas season, I've entitled my program, "Gifts of Great Value and Purpose"    We will reflect the gift of creativity we all have been given as artists and consider how we individually can share our gift in the new year 2023.

I will also come bearing gifts of great value for everyone!  Each person attending will have a packet that they can't open until I say!  I will lead a mini workshop that will need no other equipment or supplies.  It will  be a new Art Toy for all of us!" website: paulamooreart.com

Paula will display some of her artwork on tables and the program will include a time of discussion and fellowship.

"Ocean Triptych" Just got finished with this new painting and it is still dripping. 

As a physician, I have to be very meticulous. As an artist I push myself to take some 
big risks and go all out! I am proud of how it turned out! 

What do you think?
