Caroline is a multi-award winning artist, Vice-President and a Signature Member of the PSVA.  She has been having fun and experimenting with using pastels and alcohol (not the drinking kind :-).  She will be showing us how to create some very interesting effects in our paintings and show us how to allow for the serendipitous to improve our artwork.
