The Cambria Allied Art Association is Non-Profit Organization and is open to all interested persons. Our members include artists, patrons and those who have an interest in the fine arts. Although the majority of our members live in Cambria, it is not a requirement of membership. Our mission is to foster, encourage and promote the arts in Cambria. We do this by providing scholarships, creating competitions and exposing the public to various forms of visual and performing arts.

There will be an article about the Rosenthals but this is a pre-article alert:
Printmakers Rosey and Barbara Rosenthal will include some hands on audience participation at their September 16th
presentation for our Bimonthly Program Series.
We will do some printing using old (void) credit cards, so try to save one you haven't cut up.
Also think about a simple line sketch that would fit on a credit card.
This is an exciting printing innovation that Barbara and Rosey have invented for our program. <<Hide

Check out his new website: www.transparentwatercolor.com.
Updated: 04/05/2013: I've just recently managed to get published a book that I've written entitled "Doug's Watercolor Painting Book"; It describes how to execute a transparent watercolor painting plus a number of other topics that are important for artists to know about in order to succeed. It will be available through ECKO Publishing. Contact Nanice Ellis (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get further information about how to access my book.
My book has a number of examples of my artwork but also a lot of useful information that I'm sure you'll appreciate.
