Featured Artist ~ March 2016 ~ Faces and Figures
Exhibit March 1 - 26 ~ Reception March 5, 4 to 6 pm
At the age of 47, I took a drawing composition class at the local community college in Gilroy, California, and fell in love with making art. My first love was drawing from life. I now use soft pastels and oils. I was lucky to have studied with two renowned pastel artists, Ramon Kelley and Harley Brown. Drawing and painting while models pose for three hours is so exciting and challenging for me; translating quickly the values, color, and form, into a likeness which is always a bit out of my control. I love the experience of doing it.
I would like to thank all the faithful artists and others who over the years dedicated their time and effort to keeping NVAL alive and well. Thank you for coming and I hope you enjoy the show.
