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.
This was the last meeting of this season.  We will meet again in October 2013.
10 of us met at Two Bunch Palms for lunch.  See you all next fall.
