On January 13th, 2018, Steven and Nellie Sue Potter hosted SONSI’s annual Portfolio Sharing event at their new teaching studio and gallery, Nature Art Studio. The evening was cold and snowy outside, and warm and bright inside the studio as friends, new and old, (about 15) shared good food and conversation.

After the meal, we arranged our chairs in a big oval and shared our recent artwork and other endeavors. Many different media were represented: watercolour, gouache, coloured pencil, scratch board, acrylic, pen and ink, graphite, digital work on tablets and all of the media that go into Hall Train’s wonderful dinosaur creations. Some of the pieces shared were submissions for the Art of the Plant Exhibition being held later this year in Ottawa.

It was a wonderful way to start the New Year and a good time was had by all!
