I just realized that each art association I have joined has a distinct purpose in my life. I love painting with SOCALPAPA. We discover new places each week. I am beginning to get to know the artists and begin new conversations. LAPAPA brings new opportunities to exhibit in conjunction with the local galleries such as the Debra Huse Gallery and the Randy Higbee Gallery. Fun! Lastly, California Art Club has such an amazing history and opportunities throughout the state. All of these enrich my professional palette. I am learning as I go and love every minute.
