Artist of the Month: Phyllis Reinhardt

Phyllis Reinhardt is shown with her most recent paintings.

By Phyllis Reinhardt

First, I want to tell all my fellow art students, “I really miss not seeing you and watching the progress in painting we make weekly.”  

I started sketching in the beginning of our stay-at-home mode in March. Jill Swersie, our painting instructor at the Dunmore Community Center, would have been be so proud if I had continued, but I did not.

I did work on the painting in front of me on the ground. This painting was to reflect a spring sunrise over the mountain as viewed from my sunroom window. This  photo was taken in March, with no leaves on the trees. Consequently the painting looked more like autumn.  So, this was my only artistic exercise during our “lock-down.”

As you can see from the updated painting, adding leaves and flowers created the “Spring Sunrise Viewed from My Sunroom Window”.  The painting I am holding also illustrates using your home as a subject to paint.  So, I am really looking forward to resuming classes with Jill and all us students.
