The art group, of which VR (the blog editor's wife) is a member, normally meets at a village hall on the border between Hereford and Wales. It was unable to function during 2020 for reasons you may guess at.
Space has been allocated here in Tone Deaf renewed for members to display their Christmas Card designs. And to promote a somewhat frayed unity
|Mo's (Maureen's) card for Veronica. Flower|
and leaves outlined in gold; a veritable
stained-glass window design
|Helen's card goes to Brian. What medium|
did she use? "The one after water-colour,"
she says, enigmatically.
|Pauline's card for Juliet is a subtly|
shaded water-colour which tested
Photoshop to the limit.
|Veronica's card (for Sally and Geoff)|
is in Chromacolour which, in effect ,
gives more body to water colour
|Juliet's card to Helen and David is|
in two parts: exterior (above) and
interior pop-up (below)
|Not strictly a card, Derrick's offering (for Pauline and Jim) has |
a story to tell: In Derrick's words "It is on wood recycled from
Tracy's house facia replacement, pyrography, acrylic and a bit of bling."
|While Mo's (Maureen's) decoration for|
Pauline and Jim is framed embroidery
|A Christmas nuthatch for|
Derrick. From Sally
|Winter Majesty (from an|
original painted in pastels),
sent by Tracy to Mo (Maureen),
