PAPNM members are invited to participate in the Cloud Appreciation Online Contest, summer 2018.  Members can submit one painting executed between June 22 and Sept 10, with a Cloud theme.   Because the summer monsoon months are known for their dramatic skies - these paintings will be a snapshot of how the sky/clouds appear in various locations within New Mexico and beyond. The 1-week voting period will follow.
