Nice group met Wednesday, April 17, at Corkhill Palms Clubhouse to watch the portrait demonstration by ALICE LEGGETT.
LYNN HANSELMAN won the drawing to have her portrait done by this Costa Mesa artist. We were very fortunate to have ALICE LEGGETT demonstrate her painting to our group. It was a real priviledge and very informative....a learning experience.
