Daven Anderson Winter classes

Member Daven Anderson will be conducting these waterclasses this winter.

Artists, Students and Future Students:

First of all I wish all of you a wonderful holiday, 
a very Merry Christmas filled with much happiness, 
good health, great family and wonderful friends.  
Kathie and I also wish you all a 2014 filled  many 
blessings - and that you all split the Mega Millions 
prize that reached $550M today.  We hope to see all of 
you in January.  

My January, February and March class schedules are 
on my web site - 

Remember that no one loses class time.  If for any 
reason you are unable to attend one or more classes, 
they can be made up at any time.  Attendees can also 
leave their materials; paper, brushes, paints, etc. 
in the studio between classes. There is no need to 
lug them back and forth if you don't wish to.  As 
well, I have an 'open studio' policy for current 
students.  Current students may come and paint in 
the studio most Saturdays and occasionally other days 
as well at no additional fee.  Although there is no 
formal teaching program those days,help is given and 
questions are answered.  I have even demo'd some on the 
'open studio' days.

In brief, the schedule for both days and evenings 
begins the second week of January - evenings on 
Tuesdays and Thursdays - and days on Thursdays and 
Fridays. The day schedule includes lunch. The evening 
schedule includes wine.  
I look forward to seeing you and hope that Santa 
graces all of you with many tubes and brushes - and, 
most importantly, with the time to put them to good 

Warmest regards,

Miriam Krone

My cousin, Miriam Krone, passed away this morning.  She left behind warmth and light and a legacy of love that lives on with her children, Adrian Martinez Madrone and Natalie Martinez, her husband, Gregory Krone, and her exquisite grandchildren.  That her house was filled with friends and family every day since her diagnosis of brain cancer just a few weeks ago is a testament to the remarkable impact she had on nearly everyone who knew her.  Her memory is a blessing.  I'm so grateful she was in my life. 
An announcement from Adrian Martinez Madrone

12/6/2013: This morning, my Mom, Miriam Krone, passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by family. It was her time, and she did not suffer. Those of us who were not at her bedside are making our way back now.

The funeral, burial, and memorial will be held at her home this coming Sunday at 2:00 pm. All are invited to join us. There is plenty of room, and the house is ready for you.

The address is 4187 Highway KK, New Haven, MO. Be aware that the address often does not show up correctly on map programs or on GPS systems.  Also, be aware that it is expected to be somewhere around 30 degrees outside, and may be snowing. Wear appropriate clothing for the weather because there will be no shelter around the graveside.

Thank you to everyone for your love, friendship, and presence. There is no question that your love and support helped my Mom make this transition into the next part of her journey.

The members of Saint Louis Watercolor send our condolences to the family.  She was a long time signature member of SLWS and will be missed.
