As an artist, I am still trying to find my voice. That seems almost ironic considering I have spent my entire professional career helping young people find their voices.
In 2012 I retired after 32 years of teaching vocal music in the Fremont and Blair public schools. One of the first things I did as a retiree was to take a watercolor for beginners class. I now enjoy an equal share of Serendipity Studio (Hotshops 305) with some of my art friends. While we may come and go various other days of the week, you will find most of us there together on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 2:00pm. Painting together allows us to offer artsy critiques, share artistic insights and information about upcoming events, and to just reconnect as friends.
Oil is now my medium of choice... subject matter varies, but I find that I am most comfortable painting in the realistic realm. I do enjoy painting portraits capturing tender moments. Landscapes with emotional impact are also favored subject matter.
