Exhibiting the Art of Donna Howard May 28 through July 28, 2018
Art has always been a part of my life. As a child I was always doodling and drawing everything in my path - clouds, flowers, family pets, or making caricatures of teachers (usually not a good thing to do!). However, my dream of becoming an artist got pushed aside. I still studied art and photography but it wasn't until I retired that I am able to devote most of my time taking various classes and workshops. I enjoy meeting other artists and learning from everyone!
I derive inspiration from nature and the environment. Painting frees my imagination and is an important personal expression for me. I paint with both acrylics and oils depending upon the subject matter and enjoy experimenting with different mediums and surfaces. As a result of this I have branched into abstract. My art involves experiments with various mediums and "happy accidents." Most of my pieces have a lot of layers and texture.I have exhibited in both Florida and Long Island and belong to several Art Associations in both areas.
