Julie Iffla’s Goodbye Party, 24mar2009

Posted in commentary with tags on March 7, 2010 by Rog

That is right, it is almost a year ago that one of our founding members left for another state, Utah, with some Guy.  Julie Iffla did most of our administrative stuff, so we’re gratful for her.  And now we seem rudderless, so I can easily say, we miss you Julie.  Regardless, we will paint on.

Here is some pictures from Julie’s going away party — Enjoy!

Julie carrying the big bottle of Cobalt Blue paint, wait a minute, that is wine!

And boy did it pour out that night.  Here is Julie starting the ball rolling on Fred.

Here is Julie reacting to the card.  Hmm, looks like a drinking problem here, unless that is an invisible glass in her hand.

I guess it was a wild party!   So here is to you Julie!

“Winter Creek, near Pine, Idaho”, WIP, PA oil on linen board, by Craig Arrowood, 2mar10.

“McCall Sunrise”, WIP, oil by Ann Samuelson, 2mar10.

“Rising From Idaho Winter”, 20×16 oil on canvas, by Rog Lyngaas, 2mar10.

“Tuscany in California”, WIP, oil by Tony Tramp, 2mar10.

“Pow Wow Dancer”, WIP, oil by Ellen Garrard, 2mar10.

Actually, Ellen worked on three works today.  She is becoming more prolific since she is now building her own studio, with her family’s help.  We all think this is a great step for her.  The other two works follow.

“Rooster”, WIP, oil by Ellen Garrard, 2mar10.

“Drinking In of Refuges”, WIP, oil by Ellen Garrard, started 2mar10.

On this last painting, I would like to note that the thought behind this painting, according to Ellen, is about Boise’s role with refuges around the world.  We seem to be drinking them in.  This is a good thing, because now the capital of Idaho is becoming more and more, a multi-faceted culture.
