Patricia Orr is shown with her featured paintings entitled “Sarah.” She most enjoys painting portraits of her eight granddaughters.

Patricia Orr of Greentown has been named the Artist of the Month for May at the Dunmore Activity Hub. Mrs. Orr, who began painting while she was in high school, joined the painting group in February of 2016.

Her featured painting is entitled “Sarah,” and depicts her now six-year-old granddaughter when she was four years old. In fact, Mrs. Orr finds most of her inspiration for painting from her eight granddaughters.

“The oil painting class at Dunmore Senior Center has a wonderful, warm and friendly atmosphere,” Mrs. Orr explains. “That warmth encourages creativity.”

She adds that the center itself has much to offer to seniors, “Pretty much something for everyone.”
