Rosemarie Quinn of Scranton has been named Artist of the Month for February at the Dunmore Activity Hub.
Ms. Quinn began painting six or seven years ago with the class at the Hub. Her featured painting is Princess Angelina–Daughter of Chief Seattle.
She was inspired to paint the picture after reading about Indians in the Southwest.
She has been inspired in general by her mother, who was a wonderful painter. Rosemarie finds ideas for her paintings “everywhere.”
Regarding the painting class, she says, “I love the class. Everyone helps everyone and the atmosphere is wonderful. Jill Swersie is a wonderful teacher. She never criticises, she only helps us.”
As far as the Dunmore center itself, Rosemarie finds it, “Very warm and welcoming. Alison Boga, the director, is so friendly and a very welcome addition.”
