From Krakow with love

Hi everyone...greetings to the group and anyone stumbling on our Blog, from me and my SLR. This is Cloth Hall which has been in the middle of Krakow's Grand Square(Rynek) for 700 years. Textile trade started here and in the 2nd half of the 14th centuary it was extended to an imposing Gothic structure 108m x 8m after the 1555 fire, the Cloth Hall was rebuilt as a splendid Renaissance edifice with an ornate roof adorned with grotesque masks. It's where everyone hangs out. The flags in the foreground, which drew my eye, are to mark the 1st anniversary(tomorrow) of the Pope's death. So a big day tomorrow here in Cracow...

Sarah B Well here she is.... I still need to do some work on the trousers and feet, but would love some feedback on the coral coloured area. I'm not sure if it needs some more detail, variation of colour or anything else. The painting is fairly busy so I don't want to add even more if it already has enough.....Help. Karen T

Seagulls by Sarah G

Thought this painting might cheer us all up! I did it last year, its a personal favourite as it was sheer luck that the seagulls flew into shot just as i took the photo, I knew i'd have to paint it before I even saw the photo. I'm going to continue the seaside theme this year, including Brighton pier and weymouth beach which is where I took the photo for this painting. Posted for Sarah G by Sharon

HOT TOPIC - What's in a name?

We need a name...please add your comments Hello ladies I've just had a text from Sarah Booo about William Barnard's unhappiness with the group's name. I think we need to brainstorm and thought this might be a good forum. Here are some of my ideas, I look forward to seeing everyone elses and then we can have a vote..... The Hitchin Art Group, The Hitchin Contemporary Art Group , SGArt (the A being a 4) , The Feminine Five. Maybe we should just have a single powerful name, something really impactful. I did a bit of a search on Blogger and found, for example, an american art group of 3 ladies called Beehive. So here goes, Cinco (is that spanish for five) , Granada (interestingly this is spanish for Pomegranate) , The Exhibitors or Exhibitionists , Fuschia , Wild Orchids . I've dried up........ I love you all, you are all great, thanks for your support. kx
