Bruce is a self taught and ever evolving watercolor artist. He combines elements of figurative realism and abstraction creating both emotion and whimsy in his art. Bruce says he loves watercolor for the spontaneity and immediacy of the painting process, for the clarity of combining colors, and for the “happy accidents” that occur. He took a long hiatus from art but began painting again in response to the current pandemic. He says painting is his silver lining.
TORN PAPER BAS-RELIEF IMAGES
Ann folds, tears, and bends painted and colored paper to create her art. She constructs shapes from color- aided paper and paper painted with watercolors and combines them to make vibrant nature inspired images. The bas-relief technique gives her work an added dimension. The shadowbox frames she uses show- case her art beautifully. Ann has been involved in art most of her life, as an artist and as an art teacher in Brown County schools, now retired. achieves capturing fluid motion with the clay in her sculptural and functional hand-built pieces. She says that her pathway in art began in her own mother’s studio. She has studied under many profes- sional artists in Florida, Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, and Hawaii. Della’s cloud horses and many of her other pieces are gracefully lyrical, while others show the whimsy of her imagination.
