Our latest electronic newsletter is rather short. A quick reminder that our next
meeting will be at the regular time and place on September 14.
Our August meeting was rather different in that we held it on the 3rd weekend instead of
the 2nd Friday of the month and we met at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. We
started our self-tour at 10:00 am on August 18th. Our art connoisseurs were Jim, Chris,
Scott, Don B., Mark, Merrill and we were pleasantly surprised that John Larson and a
relative of his showed up. Members spent about an hour and a half perusing the
classic work from Europe and Asia acquiring inspiration and knowledge about painting and
figure work to apply to their miniatures. Afterwards a hearty meal at Rudolphs
to discuss the days events.
An example of some of the work viewed at the institute. Members studied skin colors
as well as fabric tones and texture. Some inspirational dioramas were discussed viewing
some of the landscape paintings.
