This is the largest painting I’ve ever attempted. It originated because my daughter has a frame this size and she asked me to paint something to fit it.
The subject came mostly from my imagination and, if it looks slightly “busy,” it’s because I keep adding to it.
Other artists have told me that my style is “primitive,” and I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but I’ll keep at it and hope that it evolves.
I joined the Dunmore Senior Center Art class about seven years ago and, although I have a degree in music therapy, I find art to be very therapeutic as well, I realize that I’m no Renoir, but when I’m painting, my mind is free from all other thoughts,
Our class consists of a friendly, supportive group of seasoned painters, as well as those who are beginning to explore their ability. We are very fortunate to have Jill Swersie –- a very gifted artist herself –- sharing her talent as our instructor.
We meet weekly at the Center at 1414 Monroe Avenue in Dunmore. Come join us!
