March Artist of the Month

This month’s featured artist is Donna Starnes. Donna started painting with acrylics as an adult with no formal training in art except art appreciation courses in college. She also had a longtime love of art. This year she ventured to try a few new techniques. One was a pair of portraits, done in a monochromatic scheme. In another, she used the computer to adjust a simple bouquet of tulips into a study of just two tulips to create a very contemporary style painting. The most interesting to her is a painting of a location she remembered from her childhood and it was painted just by memory. The end product, as seen on the bottom left, is a delightful recreation of her memories of a place from nearly eighty years ago.
