This month the theme is Sports and Games, compliments of Vicki Stone. Thank you Vicki!

The image I've posted is a print by Christopher Brown called Steeplechase. It's a color soft ground and spitbite aquatint etching with drypoint scrape and burnish. Did you get all that? Hahaha! It's an impressive print. I've been a fan of Brown for some time. You can watch a video about him here. If the link doesn't work, google him. It's the Spark video on KQED's website.

Sports and games can be exciting, full of movement and tension and color. What sports and games appeal to you visually? How can you translate that in your art?


Bring a theme related piece, or just something you've been wanting to share. As always, it does not have to be based on the theme. We just want you at the meeting! So hope to see you there. I'll bring chocolate!

    Since I am decidedly NOT athletic, I don't believe I thought of Sports and Games as our theme, but I do appreciate who ever it was who did suggest it!

    Bring it and share it. You may get some recommendations if you want help bringing it to completion. AND, the positive support you receive will make sharing well worth it because all artists face the "completion thing" at some time in their pursuits.

    Hi I'm new to this group, and was wondering if everyone presents a piece? I have a possible piece, but its not even in the sketch stage at this time. Looking forward to meeting other artists.

    I have a painting that I've been avoiding for two years, it's perfect for this project. Thanks for the push! I enjoyed the Chris Brown video.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
