A note of encouragement to our Artistic Family from OAG's Robert Norman:

Hi my fellow Artists ..

Just a quick note to wish everyone well in these trying times. I guess if nothing else, there is no excuse not to be creative in your art pursuits ready for the next exhibition, Which I’m sure by the time it’s scheduled to happen, it will be a go.

It’s very restrictive not to be able to go anywhere, unless on the very odd occasion, dressed up as a zombie, but hopefully it will force many of us to spend a bit more time relaxing ... even being extremely busy doing .... nothing ... as I seem to be doing a lot of, of late ..lol

So, hope everyone is well, and please stay safe.. we don’t want to lose any of the Brilliant artistic talents of the group.

Very best wishes .. Happy painting .... Robert (and Tiggy🐈)
