Senior Center Art Exhibit

The walls on the entry hall at the Senior Center looked so bare after the Silver Arts exhibits were removed, so our mixed media group that meets on Mondays was asked to put up an exhibit of our art work.   Here are a few of mine.

The last one is a watercolor on paper that is framed. We have 25 paintings hanging, but I was unable to get good pictures due to the reflections on the glass from the windows.   If I can get some better pictures next week, I will show you some of the others. Here is one done by Hazel LeBlanc (better know as “Z”).

Painting on glass

Back in the days when Donna Dewberry was so popular with her one-stroke painting techniques, I did a lot of painting in her style. including painting on glass items.  I found several boxes of glass items that were left from that time, and decided to do something with them.  Most of these items came from the thrift store at very low prices.  Here is what I did with a few of them.   The stemmed glasses in various sizes will be used as votive candle holders.   And the candy dish is obviously to hold just that –some holiday candies.  Hope you like them.

They will be for sale on November 16th when I have a Saturday sale of all of my art creations.  If you live nearby, hope you can come.  If you need directions to my house, please let me know.  The sale will be from 10 AM to 4 PM rain or shine.  One of my neighbors, Andrea Stark,  will be joining me.  She does pottery, quilting and knitting and weaving, among many other things.  I will have matted watercolor paintings,  Zentangle® creations, knitted and  crocheted items, jewelry items, and much, much more.

Thanks  for stopping by today, and see you soon.
