Vicki Andersen painting, 'BLUE COTTAGE GARDEN'
'BLUE COTTAGE GARDEN'
VICKI ANDERSEN

"I love color and painting quickly. The paint actually seems to flow out of my minds eye... to fall off my arm onto the canvas. A viewer once told me he "heard music" when he looked at my paintings."

RED BAKER, by Ann Brink, 'Red Baker'
'RED BAKER'
ANN BRINK

"I use both stoneware and porcelain clays which I fire to 2250F degrees. All items which are intended for food use are lead free and food safe. Clay is a raw material which allows and inspires infinite forms of expression, and I enjoy making sculptural works as a challenging change of pace from functional pottery.

"Watercolor is the medium I love best because of its challenging nature and the ability to work either transparent or opaque.

MOUNTAIN LAKE
'MOUNTAIN LAKE'

MARILYN STANKEWICH

"I’ve been fortunate to witness the beauty of the mountains in Montana, the ocean and hills in California and the sights from the air through flying.  All these experiences have given me insight in the beauty of the world and are my inspiration in painting.  It is thrilling to be outdoors on any day painting a scene with my trusty dog or other painters who are also enjoying the experience, as well as in my studio lost to the world’s cares"
